    You are giving mis-leading information with regards to MB and CoverArt …firstly, ‘automatic’ download of metadata+covers+backdrops is 100% Free in MediaBrowser (no plugins required) …the use of CoverArt ($10) gives you the ability to customize what the actual ‘folder.jpg’ (Movie Poster) looks like, it essentially gives it a custom border and/or a 3D look. All purely optional.
    MediaBrowser by default will fetch all posters+backdrops,etc from TMDB and TVDB for FREE.
    Also you seem to be having issues with Vanilla displaying backdrops in certain views. Very inconsistant and makes your demo video look like a sub-par user experience.
    Do your homework next time.
