Thumbnails Cleaner allows you to clean the thumbnails folder of your XBMC
How it works
Thumbnails Cleaner works for exclusion. The script read the databases and excludes the images found. No image will be deleted. Once completed, the images will be moved to the destination folder you choose. In case of simulation, the images will be copied.
Check what has been done
You can check what has been done looking the xbmc.log. Every notice of the script starts with [Thumbnails Cleaner].
Sections that will be controlled
Video Genres (movies, tvshows, musicvideos)
Actors (movies, tvshows, episodes)
All files that are present in the Textures database (no JSON) - You can query textures database to delete fields.
JSON queries in some cases may require a bit of time. Please wait!
The script is for FRODO or later only.
There may be some bugs, and the script may be incomplete, please make a backup of your Thumbnails folder!
