I'm specifically interested in fanart/thumbnails. Are those stored in the database, or still stored locally? If locally, does this mean that each client still needs to do their own scraping in order to get the images?
Unfortunately yes, individual clients need to scrape their own thumbs. Alternatively you can scrape from a master and then sync the cached thumbs to the other boxes. A hack yes, but real solutions are being nutted out.
The proposed solution is to store the original fanart/thumb URL in the DB and where a client is missing such an image, it then has the ability to go grab it.
