Before you begin - protect yourself

I recommend Private Internet Access (PIA), a well-priced ($3.33 a month if you pay for a year) VPN to secure and encrypt your internet activity.

Full disclosure: I make a little money from your subscription. But I’ve been using PIA for years and wouldn’t recommend them otherwise.

If you’re looking to expand Kodi’s reaches into online streaming, Exodus is an add-on you should install.

Warning: streaming copyrighted content is a legal grey area. If you intend to use these programs to stream anything other than public content, proceed at your own risk.

If in doubt, stream only movies in the public domain, such as George Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead.

Skip to instructions

Exodus for Kodi connects to Trakt – an IMDB-like website that allows you to sign in and track what movies and TV shows you like and watch – to give you access movies and TV shows (almost anything you can think of).

It then uses various streaming websites to play those movies and TV shows (usually in HD); synchronising what you watch with your personal Trakt (optional) so that you can follow shows, get recommendations, and make personal playlists.

That’s it! Exodus is installed :-)

Test it out by playing a movie (just open Movies, navigate through the folders to find a movie and select it).

By default, Exodus presents you with a list of sources for your chosen video. You’ll come to learn the good ones, I find GVIDEO is usually safe.

If you get errors when trying to stream and you’re on Sky broadband, check that your Broadband Shield isn’t enabled and blocking Anonymizers, filesharing & hacking as that will block streaming sites. Sky’s guide here will help you customise by category to allow streaming sites.

If you get errors and you’re with BT broadband, try disabling BT’s Smart Setup.

Any other issues, post ‘em in the comments and I’ll try to help.
