Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork

By default Artwork Beef doesn't download images, Kodi downloads it as part of its caching process. Artwork Beef can be configured to download artwork to your movie folder.

- I have downloaded some artwork with a low image number limit (3 fanarts), and would add some more, but avoid duplicates. Is it enough to raise limit and run general artwork download for existing items?
- Is there a way to clean (also from disk, or at least from Kodi) all clear* types of artowrk?

1. No, if you have fanart downloaded locally for an item, Artwork Beef won't download more. It does this to avoid duplicates.
2. Artwork Beef can remove specific artwork types if run from Program Add-ons.

Have you tried modifying the original Estuary just enough to include this? Try also on a clean install of Kodi with just your original database, no add-ons, does it still happen? Does it happen if you have the infolabels all display as individual labels instead of in a fadelabel?

I have used something very similar for a couple years now and have not had this problem. I can also guarantee there is a lot more in common with all your tests so far than just this. Narrow it down.

That randomization is up to Kodi.

Yup, Kodi does that.
