it caches all artwork for items so they can be used for any reason in Kodi including screensavers and navigation of items.

 

It does not cache actor images.

Yes it makes navigation a little faster as the images are local.

 

As you mention it depends, the caching does not do anything Kodi does not already do, each time Kodi accesses an image when navigating it caches that image, the the pre caching just does this up front, if you navigate through your collection you would have caches all the images manually anyway. The pre caching is just a way of allowing you to do this before you navigate to help keep things smooth.

If you have lots of items in your lib then it can use a lot of mem to get the list. What are the specs of your Kofi client? And how many items are in your library?

I've a amlogic S905x device,  over 200k images on the first run that went smooth. ~100k left maybe.

yeah that is a lot of images.

You might be better off just letting Kodi cache the images as you use them the first time, once Kodi caches them that will be used from the cache from that point. This way you are just caching what you need as it sounds like you have a lot of content and I doubt you would be viewing all your content constantly.

it sure is alot.. Yeah but the navigation has been laggy from time to time, thought if I cache the artwork it would be more smooth overall. Guess 100k have to do it then, or buy better hardware lol.

You can check how it would work with fully cached images, just navigate to an like a tv show or page of movies and let all the images load. Now go back to the home screen and then navigate to that same area again, going to areas you already have been to should be using caches images, if this is smoother then caching is helping.
