What is Kodi Exodus?

Exodus is an open-source set of code created by the developer Lambda that integrates three major components together:

  1. The Scraper
  2. The Resolver
  3. The Search Engine

The actual Exodus addon (including Exodus Redux and other addons) is the search engine. Its job is to search and query movie and TV titles. In the case of Exodus, it uses Trakt, TMDB, and TVDM databases to present movies and titles in playlists such as “most popular” or “trending movies”.

When you search a title in the Kodi Exodus addon, it searches through scrapers, which are websites on the internet that contain links to media files.

In the initial version of Exodus, these scrapers were local to the addon. Nowadays, some community scraper projects exist such as Universal Scrapers and Civitas Scrapers. Community scrapers can be updated and then all addons using those scrapers receive the same updates.

But anyway, back to Exodus!

After you search, Exodus shows you a list of media file. The one you pick to play is passed off to a resolver. The resolver module in Exodus is URLResolver, which is a collection of instructions on how to navigate through file hosts to get out the raw video file.

The resolver passes Kodi a media file that plays on your Kodi hardware.


Kodi Exodus Features

All versions of Exodus come with the following features:

  • Over 50 media sources scraped by the addon.
  • Special categories for movies and TV including most popular, latest releases, special genres, sorted by rating, and many more.
  • Support for non-English streams, such as Greek, Spanish, French, and more.
  • Full Library integration. Save your favourite media titles to your Kodi library for quick access and updating.
  • Full Trakt.tv support. Trakt is a third-party library and tracking tool. Click here for more information.
  • Full support for many popular account-based services, including Real-Debrid, Premiumize, and more.


Latest Kodi Exodus Update

The original Exodus addon has not been maintained by Lambda since early 2017 when Lambda retired as a developer from the community.

That doesn’t mean that the legacy of Exodus doesn’t live on though!

Today, there are two recommended forks of the Exodus addon that live on and are under development.

Kodi Exodus Kodibae Version

The Kodibae repository is a mysterious Github repo that updates the code of addons formally created and maintained by TVAddons. TVAddons is currently involved in a court case in Canada over the legality of its addons and does not host any grey-area content.

The Kodibae developer keeps some of the original TVA addons up to date, including Exodus. This version of Exodus is largely the same as the original release and it updates every few months with some new scrapers updates to check out.

The latest version of the Kodibae Exodus is v8.1.4, updated on October 12th, 2019.

Exodus Redux Kodi Addon

Exodus Redux is a popular fork of the original Exodus addon. It makes some key changes to the code base:

  • The resolver has been changed from URLResolver to ResolveURL, which receives more regular updates.
  • The scraper module has changed from local to the Open Scrapers community codebase.

Exodus Redux went without an update from December until March 2019 until a brand new update, v2.0.1. popped up on March 9th just a few days after the removal and hack of the 13 Clowns repo. Then, the addon went from March until November 21st, 2019 without an update before it was updated to fix the TVDb errors.

The information about the latest version of the Exodus Redux Kodi addon is below.

Below, we include the latest information for both Exodus and Exodus Redux, including troubleshooting and configuration help as well

How to Setup / Configure Exodus Redux Addon

OpenScrapers should be enabled by default. To double-check whether OpenScrapers is enabled, follow these instructions:

  1. From the Home Menu, go to Tools > SETTINGS: Providers
  2. “Choose Module Provider Source” should be set to “OpenScrapers”
  3. Open OpenScrapers Settings
  4. In the “Providers” section, Openscrapers should be selected from the “Choose Module Scraper” pull-down menu.
  5. In the “Providers”, “Foreign” and “Debrid” (if using a debrid service) sections, you can also enable/disable specific providers. If you want to use a different Module Scraper
  6. In the “Providers” section, select the scraper set you want to use from the “Choose Module Scraper” pull-down menu.
  7. In the “Providers” section, select “Enable ALL Providers(for current Module)”. This enables all providers for the current module in addition to any previously enabled providers. Note: “Foreign” and “Debrid” are only available with Lambdascrapers

Tip: Before selecting “Open Scrapers Default Providers”, it is a good idea to “Disable All Providers” first.

Tip: When switching Module Scrapers it is good idea to “Disable All Providers” first.


Kodi Exodus Not Working Help

If the Exodus addon is not working for you, it can be frustrating!

Luckily, most Exodus problems are common and can be fixed with a little bit of reading. Check out our full Exodus not working guide for common problems and solutions to Exodus addon problems!

If you are getting problems using Exodus Redux, you may need to re-enable LambdaScrapers inside of the Exodus Redux addon. Check out our Exodus Redux LambdaScrapers steps above.

If you aren’t tech savvy and just want to try something else, check out our best Kodi addons and best all-in-one Kodi addon lists for more details.


Kodi Exodus No Stream Available Fix

“No Stream Available” is a common Kodi error that most users will run into. There is a common misconception about Kodi addons you must first understand before we talk about how to fix this error:

  • If I see a title in Exodus, a stream must be available for it.

This is NOT true! Titles in Kodi are pulled from a service like Trakt or IMDB. If a movie is not released yet or is really old, there may not be any streams available and no troubleshooting will fix this.

If you are certain that a stream should be available for a title, you need to make sure that your scrapers are setup and working. Refer to the steps above in this guide on how to make sure your scrapers are working in the Exodus settings.

Try restarting the Kodi Exodus addon or Exodus Redux addon again. Try installing Kodi from scratch with NO build and this will most likely solve your problems.

We also have a No Stream Available Kodi guide which provides more details.


How to Authorize Trakt in Exodus Redux

If you are a Trakt user and store your movies and TV data in that service, you can sync your account by launching Exodus Redux and going to Tools > Authorize Trakt. Follow the prompts on the screen to sync your account accordingly.


Missing My Lists in Exodus Redux (Trakt)

If you are missing your “My Lists” which are your specialty playlists pulled from Trakt, you need to follow these instructions:

  1. Launch the Exodus Redux Addon.
  2. Click on Tools
  3. Click on SETTINGS: General
  4. In the General tab, go down to My Lists under the “Menu” sub-heading and make sure it is set to Enabled.
  5. Go to the Accounts tab.
  6. Under the “Trakt” sub-heading, click on Authorization/Re-Authorize and re-sync your Trakt account to Exodus Redux.


Kodi Exodus Tips

Check out some of the Exodus tips we’ve compiled from hundreds of questions and feedback submitted to us on social media.

  • Watching old content in Exodus – The Exodus Kodi addon searches the public internet for media. The older and more obscure the content is, the less likely it is available on the internet. There is nothing you can do about this. A private usenet server, such as Easynews, is the best way to view old and obscure content.
  • Seeing more streams in Exodus – Some users want to watch new content but still have trouble. Here are some common tips to improve your experience:
    • If its a movie you want information on, make sure it is out on DVD. If the movie has just come out in theatres, stop searching Exodus for anything.
    • If you live in the UK, your internet service provider may be blocking access to over half the available content in Exodus. Click here for more information.
    • If you have an Android TV box, make sure your OS version is AT LEAST 5+. The Exodus Kodi addon is not supported on Android 4.4
    • Make sure that you have at least Kodi 17.0 or greater (latest version is always preferred). Exodus is not supported on Kodi 16 or less.
  • Seeing only trailers in Exodus – If you commonly only see trailers when looking for streams in Exodus, click here.
  • GVideo links not working or missing – Gvideo media links are popular because they are fast and in good quality, but they are often prone to being removed from the internet. Click here for more information.

  1. How in the heck do I get the TV listings to show Date and Upcoming episodes…with the colors like
    red for upcoming normal whit for not seen…also when I have finished watching and select marked watch in Trakt (yes I do have an account and it’s authorized) I do not get a check mark beside that episode…Thanks
    eg: 11.17.20 Jacks Show Ep 3

  2. It appears that the “Enable Downloads” option has been removed from both Exodus and Exodus Redux. Has anyone found a workaround?

  3. Hi, we’re able to enter, pick a movie and then at loading point it gets stuck, the blue line of loadibg runs but get stuck in the middle. Every movie… the problem started 2 days ago. We cant even cancell, it stuck…the only way it to turn off and then on but once we click on a movie same happends….what to do?! Deas anyone knows???

  4. To get collections to show up you need to enable my lists. Refer to instructions above on the article.

  5. Since last update, in every movie or tv show i watch, is the same strange subtitle imput. How can i remove it?

  6. Replaced Lambdascrapers with Openscrapers seems to be a mistake at this time. Not bringing up providers for some older shows, and bunch of useless providers for recent shows.

  7. I’ve reset everything I could reset and did all the reauthorization with trakt. Still cannot see anything from trakt. The choice is trakt or exodus? Exodus loses!
    Go to the Incursion addon. It still spittle great and is an orthogonal exodus fork.

  8. It won’t update nor install, a box says: “The dependency on script.module.openscrapers version”

  9. I tried to install this add-on, however the url doesn’t work in file manager. It says that the server isn’t up/working. Have you been tracking this latest development?
