Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork

When Artwork Beef downloads new art to folders I imagine that hash changes. Does AB also calculate the new hash after the download is complete to help Kodi avoid a rescan of those folders since video items are unchanged? This would be especially important if AB is set to periodically download artwork in the background.
No, Artwork Beef doesn't recalculate a new hash. Why is this particularly important, though? AB running periodically will generally only change the content of a few folders at a time so won't have much of an impact.

You are quite confused. "userdata/Thumbnails" is Kodi's internal artwork cache, and it should not be futzed with. If you really were mounting "userdata/Thumbnails" from an NFS share then you are introducing network paths where there should not be. Also see the wiki page on Kodi best practices for file organization.

I need more and detailed information to help you in general. Your faulty assumptions are not helpful, while a debug log is the single most helpful thing you could have given me.

I'd suggest against doing that. The information folder is a separate option to satisfy the general motivation of your request: you want to store media files in different layout. The artist information folder is a consistent place for Kodi to find additional artwork and info about an artist without regard to media file layout.
