Kodi Exodus Not Working – A Few Solutions


Kodi is a Windows Media Center alternative that Tech Junkie covered in this guide. It’s also a multimedia software package that you can customize with add-ons. One of the latest add-ons for Kodi is Exodus, which enables you to stream and play a variety of movies and TV shows. However, some users have found that the Exodus add-on doesn’t work correctly for them. If you’re having trouble with Exodus, here are a few fixes that should resolve the most common issues.

At the time of this writing, the latest version of Exodus is v2.0.10. If you haven’t already added the Exodus add-on to Kodi, you can install it with the software’s file manager.

“No Stream Available”

One common issue is receiving a “No Stream Available” message when you try to watch a movie or show. This could be due to a problem with the stream itself, rather than the Exodus add-on. You’ll see the “No Stream Available” message if there are no websites with working streams for the movie or show you’ve selected. Unfortunately, this simply means that you can’t watch that particular stream, because no one is broadcasting it.

However, if you’re sure that there’s a stream available for the movie or show that you’re looking for, the “No Stream Available” message could indicate a problem with the Kodi or Exodus software. To fix this, uninstall your Kodi software. Next, reinstall the Kodi package from scratch, without any add-ons. Then add Exodus to the program again. This “fresh” installation should resolve the issue.

Exodus Doesn’t Run at All

Another common issue is the Exodus add-on not working at all. This often happens because Exodus was added to an outdated version of Kodi. The Exodus add-on is only compatible with Kodi Isengard (version 15) or higher. The latest version as of this writing is Kodi Jarvis, so the add-on certainly works with that. If you haven’t updated the Kodi software for a while, you should do that now. You can download the latest version of Kodi here.

“Working” Symbol, But Video Won’t Play

Some users reported that they see a “working” symbol when they click a film or show, but the video doesn’t play. This problem seems to be related to the BT internet service provider (ISP). If BT is your ISP, you can resolve this Exodus issue by disabling the Smart Setup feature on your BT Hub. BT explains how you can do this here.

Only a Few Videos Will Play

If you find that you can only play a limited number of TV shows in Exodus, it might be because the Kodi program has an outdated URL Resolver. You can check your URL Resolver in Kodi by selecting System > Add-ons > System, then Dependencies. Then scroll down to find URL Resolver and select it, as in the shot below. You can update the URL Resolver from this screen.

First time user of kodi on smart tv… loaded wizard which I got the addy to from someone on twitter… first attempt at streaming film and screen froze. When I try to get into kodi again it keeps coming up with the same screen and I am unable to exit or cancel this screen so in effect kodi is non operational. How do i
A) remove this frozen screen
B) delete kodi from tv?
Would be grateful if you could advise.

When I select a to show it keeps playing the first episode of the series, no matter whic season I go into it still plays the same first episode. How do I fix this?



December 12, 2016 at 5:16 pm

Every time I select a to show it always plays the first show from that season regardless of what show I pick to watch. How can I sort this out?



December 29, 2016 at 2:19 pm

I found a solution.
– Go into the Exodus add-on settings screen
– Go to Providers



December 13, 2016 at 6:41 pm

I have a temporary solution:
Right mouse button on the episode you want to see.
Select “play using…”
Select 2nd or 3rd source.
There you are…

I have the same issue with only the first episode of any season being played. Have you found a solution?

Check the date on your system. I have an MXQ streaming device, and the date is always set to 2014 when it restarts. If I change it to the current date, then the current seasons show up. If it’s set in 2014, it only shows the seasons up through 2014.

Have had Kodi installed on my firestick since it came out. Now all of a sudden shows seem to disappear as soon as I have watched that episode making it impossible to rewatch episodes again. Any advice? 🙂

If you click the right button a few times when your on the screen with the shows it should come up a menu asking to hide shows or something like that. Make sure that isn’t on because it hides the ones you watch



January 10, 2017 at 11:31 am

Make sure your hide episode button isn’t on, if you right click a few times on the list of episodes a menu should come up and it will be on there.

sometimes it doesn’t load all available shows in a season. i was on episode 8, now it only shows 2. I cleared cache, time is correct on box, restarted, updated exodus.. nothing



January 15, 2017 at 1:26 pm

Every new show that comes onto Exodus will only show episodes 1 – 10, even though there are more episodes in a season???



January 25, 2017 at 9:51 pm

I am having the same “working but video will not play”. I do not have BT as an isp, I have AT&T. Ideas?



January 26, 2017 at 7:10 pm

Having issues where it keeps cycling through the sources and won’t play anything. Any ideas



January 27, 2017 at 4:59 am

I have an issue where the Addon opens but won’t load into the page with the movies on, for example I can open exodus then click movies, but when i click most popular it try’s to load then nothing happens it won’t go past that screen to show me movies, it’s a brand new fire stick and it’s for a friend, I done the exact same thing to mine as I have with this one and mine works fine.

I’ve tried resetting the stick, deleting kodi and getting the Rc 4 update and still nothing.

Any ideas?

I updated Kodi to v17 and updated Exodus to latest version. Now I get the ‘no streams available’ for almost everything I try to watch. I’ve deleted and reinstalled but same problem persists. Help please!



February 11, 2017 at 7:49 pm

Exodus just completely disappeared from Kodi. I’ve tried to reinstall but it won’t allow me to.



February 12, 2017 at 11:28 am

I have exodus 3.0.5.
I search for Woody Allen’s movie “Alice” and I can filter it so it is the only choice. When I play it I keep getting an Italian film by the same name. Any way to stop this and get the one I want?



February 12, 2017 at 7:29 pm

Just downloaded kodi on Windows, I got exodus on there, it works, but none of the info is appearing such as movies, tv shows, ect. The lists appear like they should, but no words appear so you have no idea what you’re choosing once you open exodus.



February 18, 2017 at 1:42 pm

Exodus works but will not search for movies I go to search it just spins and nothing comes up…just got android unit for techtvlive..
