Is it ffmpeg "under the hood"? I didn't know that. Yeah, I should be able to get the functionality down...

IMO, if this works for a given file, then there shouldn't be a need to scrape the info.

Regarding ffmpeg functionality... Should I just write it as a shell-script?

Yes except afaik the embedded artwork will be one pic (correct me if I am wrong).

Kodi wants fanart, thumbnail, poster and others (depending on skin). Also people like things like ratings, actors etc. Scraping will still be needed.

I don't know about ffmpeg, but for mp4 (and other quicktime based formats) it seems that AtomicParsley is the tool of choice.

AtomicParsley /path/file.mp4 -T 1 - shows all the atoms in the file

AtomicParsley /path/file.mp4 -E - extracts all pics in the the mp4 file and leaves them in /path

Well that’s what the instructions say anyway. All the mp4 files I have that I have tried so far perhaps don't have any artwork inside.

I'm not sure I understand your use of the word "needed" in that context.

At least with MKV files, all of that info can be added to metadata, if desired.

Alright... ffmpeg's "-dump_attachment" option should do the trick, but I'm not having any luck at all with it on ffmpeg version 2.8.11-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

While digging around, I found this, which may be relevant - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=58117

MP4Box is a good way to add artwork to an MP4 file.

Code:
MP4Box  -itags  cover=img.jpg  -cat in-file.mp4  -new  out-file.mp4
