Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork

Ohh ya, Artwork Beef does something differently for multiple fanart. Kodi supports freely named artwork in the library, which Artwork Beef uses to add more than one fanart. Skins need to do something different to access them, but this performs so much better than the classic extrafanart that it's worth it. When I moved the documentation from the first post this info got moved to "Skin support".

@kardesken I am not sure what's going wrong here, and I can't recreate it. Can you upgrade to the latest nightly and try again? It seems to be with gathering a list of music videos, did this problem start after adding a music video, maybe one with a character in the title that doesn't display correctly? I do have an idea that might fix this, but I can't recreate it so it's more of a guess. If all else fails I can add more details to the error message in the next version to help point the way.
