Let’s just say that I’m new to cdart manager so these questions may have been answered before but I looked for hours through this forum and couldn’t find the answer. I’m using AEON MQ 4
Ok I have a music library stored on my NAS. I have some artists/albums that will never be found but the scrapers. With that in mind I set up the cdart manager to store all the art inside the artist folders like you see on box #3.
Where are the files coming from on box #1 I don’t see them in my library? Are they dynamically pulled from the internet?
XBMC Stores URLs as it finds them with the Music Scraper, it will mirror a thumbnail(smaller in size to a point) for faster access.. These will be automatically refreshed as the source changes(after about 24hrs after the change)
The album art box #2 which is stored in my album folders as folder.jpg is not always showing the right art is XBMC have they own album art it overnights the files stored in the library folders?
If XBMC has already placed an image in the database for the album, depending on how it was found, it may refresh it after a period of time(approx 24hrs) The reason I say it may is because it will not refresh it if the original image was an URL(found via scraping) and the new image is the folder.jpg.
When I go into the artist’s mode and I see all the artist thumbnails are those pulled from the artist folder called folder.jpg?
Thanks for all your help.
The artist thumbnail depends on what library level you are on(ie artist, album, song) and the skin. this is because XBMC only has certain parts of the library immediately available to the skin. Some skin developers have 'cheats' to show images.
Until XBMC provides access for an addon to adjust the Artwork in the Music Library, the script can not change the image paths.

Thanks, but after following the instructions to install PIL and rebooting I'm till getting the same error:
I dont know how to check the install like in the how to though. I tried installing PIL via pip and got:
pip install PIL
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): PIL in ./.pyroscope/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PIL-1.1.7-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg
└──╼ pip install PIL --upgrade
Requirement already up-to-date: PIL in ./.pyroscope/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PIL-1.1.7-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg
But after rebooting still no luck
Could xbmc be trying to use pyroscopes PIL?
XBMC's access to the system python does not seem to understand .egg files. There probably is a proper method to fix this.. Can you try to install Pillow, it seems to be a drop in replacement for PIL except that it is supposed to work
You probably also use 'sudo pip install PIL --upgrade'
