Artwork Beef automatically adds extra artwork for media in your media libraries. It is generally intended to handle extended artwork just as Kodi and scrapers already do for basic artwork. It grabs artwork from the file system and wonderful web services fanart.tv, TheTVDB.com, The Movie Database, and TheAudioDB.com.
It is developed for Kodi 17 Krypton, and should also work for 16 Jarvis and 18 Leia.
15 Isengard should mostly still work, but it’s really time to update.

It fully supports series and season artwork from TheTVDB.com; movie, movie set, music video, series, and season artwork from fanart.tv; movie and movie set artwork from The Movie Database; and music video artwork from TheAudioDB. For those series that really pop, high-quality fanart for each episode can be added from The Movie Database. The music library is supported in Kodi 18 Leia for artists, albums, and songs, with artwork from TheAudioDB and fanart.tv.
