Using Exodus Kodi Addon
After a video is selected to watch Exodus will take 60 seconds to find the best links available.
Once it finds the best links it will display them.
To start the video click the first link and Exodus will automatically go through them until one starts playing.
If a link comes up with a popup saying to PAIR click cancel and it will go to the next link on the list.
Once a stream starts if it buffers stop it from playing and click farther down the list of links until a good one is found.
Sometimes a good link will be found quickly while other times it will be harder to find and require a bit of patience.
Kodi Frequently Asked Questions
Why Don’t I see Exodus?
Exodus is located in its own repository, as long the repository is installed into Kodi it will show up when enabled.
To see which repositories you have installed go to Install From Repository . All the installed Repositories will be shown.
Clicking on a repository will also show the add-ons it contains.
Why Don’t I see the Add-on I am looking for?
Each add-on will be located in its own repository, so adding the repository it is in will be necessary.
For example the popular Magic Dragon add-on is located in the Supremacy Repository.

When I click a link to a TV show or movie the link doesn’t work or buffers.
This does happen and the more popular Kodi becomes the more the servers/sources can at times become overwhelmed.
This is the reason many sources will come up on a list. If one source link does not work go to the next link. If it starts to buffer stop the video and move on to another link.
Most often a good source can be found within 2-3 links depending on the time of day.
Most add-ons will automatically try to go through the list of links but sometimes stop.
For example if an add-on stops on link 7, restart at link 8.
What Is a VPN?
A VPN provides privacy and security while being online.
Entities such as Internet Service Providers or unscrupulous persons will only see encrypted data and not be able to track what is being done.
This gives a user anonymity as well as privacy while online.
A VPN is not necessary to use Kodi but can hide all online activities which has become very desirable.
It can also help bypass any blocking an ISP (Internet Server Provider) may be doing.
