Like any other Kodi media player addon, Exodus can run into issues and need occasional maintenance. Here is what you can do if you are having issues with Exodus not working on Kodi.
The instructions in this article apply to all versions of the Exodus addon for Kodi.
Causes of Exodus not working on Kodi
Exodus caches media streams, and the dataset it pulls changes. If Exodus tries to load from a cache that is no longer available, it will fail. Regularly clearing the cache can help prevent this problem. If Exodus stops working completely, it could be because a newer version is available.
The film and television industry have made a concerted effort to shut down add-ons streaming for Kodi. If you use Exodus, your ISP I could send you notices DMCA, slow down your speed or even block content altogether. Fortunately, the use of a vpn can help you bypass ISP restrictions.

How to fix Exodus not working on Kodi
Try these steps in order until Exodus is working properly:
- Clear the cache. To clear Kodi’s entire cache, you need to install a separate addon. However, if you just want to clear the Exodus cache, you can follow the instructions in the next section.
- Check for an Exodus update. Broken plugins are usually a good indication that an update is due. Go to Plugins > My Plugins > Video Plugins > Exodus, and then select To update to see available updates. Select the latest and install it.
- Adjust the timeout settings. If you’re having trouble finding streams after clearing the cache, start Exodus and go to Tools > Settings. Select the General taband then move the Vendor Timeout slider down to about 30.
The reduced wait time setting will cause Exodus to stop waiting for a vendor. If a provider is slow, Exodus will simply drop it and switch to a different source.
- Connect through a VPN. Make sure that the device you are using is connected to the Internet through a VPN. Pick the closest server that doesn’t have a lot of traffic, and make sure that no DNS information is being leaked by running a DNS leak test. If possible, implement a VPN kill switch to ensure no data is leaked.
- Reinstall Exodus. If all else fails, consider reinstalling Exodus. Go to Plugins > My Plugins > Video Plugins > Exodus, and select Uninstall. This will completely uninstall Exodus from Kodi. Navigate to the Exodus plugin page again, and then select the button Install.
- Check for a new repository or switch plugins. Exodus may leave Kodi or expire, or a different repository will become its primary home. The Kodi landscape is by no means static, and you will find add-ons that come and go. Check alternatives like Covenant, Gaia or Exodus Redux.
