iCloud artwork sync?


I was wondering what exactly does “iCloud artwork sync” mean in the Upcoming Features thread? Does it mean it will store all artwork data on your iCloud account instead of fetching it from TVDB and TMDB from every device?


The way I understand it is that Infuse will download the artwork just as it does now but instead of just syncing the text metadata to iCloud it will now also sync that artwork so Infuse doesn’t have to go back to thetvdb and themoviedb to get the artwork again. The entire metadata both text and artwork could be restored from iCloud if needed which should be a lot faster.

That would be great, less hammering the TVDB and TMDB servers and faster sync between devices. I’m excited about this new feature. Also consistent artwork across all devices I hope!
