For years, Exodus was one of the top-used applications by Kodi die-hards. Originally created by famed Kodi developer TVAddons, Exodus was a platform in which you could watch your favorite movies, TV shows, and more from within Kodi. Although it was undoubtedly a piracy application, TVAddons and Exodus was beloved around the world for their ease of access and the incredible flexibility of the platform. That said, not everyone was a fan of TVAddons. The main developers in front of the actual Kodi platform disavowed Exodus and its development team as an app solely made for piracy. Still, the app remained used by millions of people around the world, until finally, in June of 2017, TVAddons, the Fusion repo, and Exodus were all shut down and disabled.

So, if you were a recent Exodus user but you’ve been seeing issues and error messages alerting you that there’s “No Stream Available,” it’s because Exodus is effectively dead. While there used to be a dozen or more ways to bring Exodus back, unfortunately, this summer seemed to be the last we’ll see of the Exodus team. Even when TVAddons and Fusion came back at the end of July, the developer seemed to be taking the platform in a new direction, ignoring the past of Exodus and leaving the program behind to bite the dust. For a while, it seemed like Kodi fans were without hope, though as we’ve seen before with dead platforms like Phoenix, something always rises from the ashes before it.
Enter Covenant, the new kid on the block when it comes to streaming. Covenant acts, works, and looks exactly like Exodus.
Luckily, there’s a new kid on the block. Kodi is a Windows Media Center alternative that Tech Junkie covered in this guide. It’s 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. You can update the URL Resolver from this screen.
