About cache folder

funkwlmpv has to cache tracks before playing (default disabled "enable_persistent_cache"). Cache is persistent and you should manage it manually because the (script/program) can't clean it automatically. Cache structure: cache/domain.tld/[track uuid]
You can play tracks offline, example: mpv --shuffle cache// - it might be useful for compression cache (lossy: vorbis 128 kbps, no thumbnail)

Also, tnx Inex for his FunkWhale instance (set by default instance)
