Local artwork will definitely speed up scanning. It will also give you more consistent results as you will be able to select higher quality artwork. In addition, your artwork will always be available should you add another client, whereas internet hosted artwork has a habit of disappearing (this point is important when adding extra clients to a shared library).

No, it can't actually - there's already the built-in library "export" option for that. However, you'll just be exporting your cached artwork, which will contain resized and lower quality versions of the original artwork so it's not really an ideal solution IMHO. You're better off using something like Ember Media Manager to organise your local artwork (using the highest quality available) and metadata.

Here's my results:



That looks like it's working normally. For Movies, all your posters and fanarts were already cached, so nothing more needed to be cached. However for TV Shows your cache was missing 21 items so they were added to the cache. Now your texture cache should be fully populated and the GUI not wasting any more time encoding artwork as you browse through your movies and tv shows.
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
