[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

Is this expected?

If you have not configured texturecache.py to cache cast (actor) thumbnails - the default is not to cache cast thumbs - then any cached cast thumbnails will be pruned when you run P.

Enable cast thumbnail caching by configuring cache.castthumb = yes in texturecache.cfg (or on the command line), and then your cast thumbs will be cached, and they will also no longer be pruned.

Not sure about your discart - if the discart urls are in your media library, and the image files are accessible to kodi, then they should have been cached when you run texturecache.py.

It is possible to cache only certain types of artwork, eg. cache.artwork=poster,fanart would cache only posters and fanart. However the default is to cache all movie artwork (poster, fanart, discart, clearlogo, whatever) - have you perhaps configured texturecache.py to cache only a limited set of artwork types, that does not include discart?

Otherwise, enable logging and re-cache only a specific movie that includes both actors and discart - for example run texturecache.py @logfile=tc.log C movies <movie-name-with-actors-and-discart> - then upload tc.log somewhere and post the link here.

Seems the texturecache tool cached these images successfully, but failed to set them in database, so Kodi has no knowledge about them and download it again from online when they are used.

Is that spider man image in your media library? It would appear not, otherwise the script would not be suggesting it should be pruned when you run p.

Can you run texturecache.py jd movies homecoming (I'm assuming the Spider Man movie for the above discart PNG includes "homecoming" in the title - if not replace "homecoming" with whatever name you have used for the movie) and paste the output here.
