Extra debug context items that work on individual media items can be enabled in the add-on settings. “AB: Remove all artwork” will remove all artwork from the single selected item. “AB: Log debug info” will run through the automatic process like “AB: Add missing artwork” and logs the result to the standard Kodi log, but it doesn’t change anything (helpful for troubleshooting).
Scripts, skins, and other add-ons can use commands to control bits and pieces of Artwork Beef.
You can disable the automatic processing after library updates and schedule them with something like the Kodi Callbacks add-on or trigger them in some other way.
Like the context menu items generally under “Manage …”, skins can add them somewhere else.
RunScript(script.artwork.beef, mode=gui, mediatype=tvshow, dbid=$INFO[ListItem.DBID])
mode can also be “auto”, and
mediatype can be “tvshow”, “movie”, “episode”, “set”, “musicvideo”,
“artist”, “album”, and “song”.
