Status of the Exodus Kodi Addon
If you have not already noticed, over the past few days the Exodus Addon has not been working very well. If you are newer to Kodi or have ONLY used Exodus this may seem like the end of the world. But we have been doing this for many years and have been through times like this before. Addons do have issues from time to time.
We do know that there are people that are working on Exodus. However we have no connection with these developers and cannot give any kind of time frame as to when it will be fixed. Please remember that these developers do this in their spare time and do not get paid for this. So please be patient and never post any negative comments on their forums or personal pages.
With all of that being said we made a decision to move Exodus from the shortcuts menu within Kodi and replace it with an addon called Zen. We will move it back to the shortcuts menu in a later update when it is back to being stable. (Exodus will still be installed with this update. You can find it by hovering or highlighting “Video” and then click on Add-ons below Video.)
Is there an upside to Exodus not working very well?
We are very glad that you asked J if we can quote Manny from Elite Mods (Our Kodi Programmer) “Never be married to one addon!”
Manny’s statement comes from years of seeing addons come and go. Hence why he uses many different addons to find streams. If one addon dies or is not performing well, he simply switches to one of the 40+ addons on his Skystream ONE and uses it to find his streaming content.
So what other addons are good?
When we push out an update, we go through and test all of the addons. If one is not working we remove it from the updater. When new addons have proven themselves to be reliable and stable, we add them to the updater. So pretty much any addon you click on will be a good one.
Here is a breakdown of our favorite addons that are in the video shortcuts menu in Kodi after this update.
Primewire / 1Channel – This addon finds Movie and TV Show streams from all over the world. It is one of the oldest Kodi addons ever developed.
Specto Fork – This addon is based off of the old Genesis Addon that was developed by the developer of Exodus (Lamba.) This addon is good for TV Shows and Movies. It functions almost identically to Exodus.
Evolve – Evolve is a compilation addon. It has many contributors with their own sections within the addon. This addon is great to browse around and find content you would normally find.
Phoenix – Phoenix is another compilation addon. It has just about every type of streaming video content you could ask for. This is a great addon to explore if you have never used it before.
Sportsdevil – Sportdevil’s main purpose is to find streams for live sporting events around the globe. So if you are a sports fan we would suggest exploring this addon.
Silent Hunter – Silent Hunter is a great addon to find Movies. Silent hunter also has a 4K movie section. But please note that 4K content requires lots of bandwidth to stream. So you may encounter buffering, even if you have fast internet.
ZEN – Zen is a great addon for TV Shows and Movies. It operates very much the same as Exodus. This is why we put in in Exodus’s spot for the time being.
