How to Stream A Video With Exodus and Kodi
After the Exodus add-on is installed it will be located from the main menu under Addons–>Video Add-ons
Finding movie or TV show within Exodus is easy to do what confuses most is how the servers work.
Once a video is selected to play a server list will come up with available streams. Exodus will take 60 seconds to pull in all the best server links.
Servers can become full and kick a connection or start to buffer, if this happens simply move on to another server.
Sometimes 4-5 servers will need to be tried before a good one is found.
The servers are simple enough to understand, basically if one becomes full and doesn’t allow any more connections, then a server that is not full needs to be found.
Sometimes a server will come up that ask to PAIR with it. Simply hit the cancel button on any Server asking to Pair and move on to the next on the list.
