Exodus Addon Review: Benefits and Limitations
Exodus is perhaps one of the most popular Kodi addons currently available. A child of the now-defunct addon Genesis, Exodus provides users with an extremely large number of streaming options. This includes a wide range of movies and TV shows, both from American producers and internationally. While Exodus does not provide any live TV viewing through its platform, it does give access to high-quality on-demand video media. We’ll walk through the positives and negatives of this addon, as well as some of its more interesting features and offerings.
The best thing you’ll find with Exodus is its extremely large library and impressive stream quality. Exodus pulls from a large number of sources for all of the TV shows and movies listed in its database. The database is full of thousands of movies and TV shows covering every category. Perhaps one of the best benefits is that you’ll find new release movies and new TV show episodes as well as a good number of movies and TV shows dating back several decades.
Exodus uses a rather high-quality resolver that will seek out the best quality stream before delivering it to your screen. In the cases where it can’t find a stream, you’ll receive a message that it cannot locate one for you. However, Exodus is updated semi-regularly to update stream providers to help avoid too many issues related to dead streams.
Exodus has one of the best menu and browsing functions for any addon. For example, under the TV section, content is viewable based on genre, rating, network, popularity, air date and more. You can also find TV shows using the TV calendar, save TV shows you watch regularly and search for specific people if you like certain actors or actresses.
Finally, you can set up various accounts to work with Exodus, including RealDebrid, Trakt, and AllDebrid.
The only real limitation to Exodus is in the fact that it only provides on-demand streams and no live TV. Additionally, some of the TV and movie categories within Exodus tend to be a bit limited.
For example, Exodus is not the best place to find foreign films. Although you’ll find a rather long list of movies categorized by language, for the most part, these are American films with subtitles in various other languages. Additionally, Exodus lacks a documentary section for its movies, meaning you’ll have to turn elsewhere if you’re a documentary fan. What your looking for might be there, but it will be a bit more difficult to find, if it’s there at all.
Exodus in the News
On February 3, 2017, TorrentFreak reported on a disturbing security breach directly tied to Exodus. Due to its popularity, it appears that Exodus was a target of a massive DDoS attack. As reported by TorrentFreak, the developer behind Exodus, an anonymous Kodi community figure who is known only as “Lambda” inserted malicious code into a recent Exodus update. The reasoning behind this appears to be an act of revenge.
Due to its popularity, it appears Exodus and its developer had drawn the ire of a number of adversaries. At some point, several of these adversaries obtained Lambda’s true identity and threatened to expose it unless certain conditions of theirs were met. Instead of bowing to pressure, Lambda decided to fight back by inserting code into Exodus that used Exodus users’ computers to launch DDoS attacks on adversarial websites. In effect, Lambda had created a DDoS botnet.
Discussions erupted across Kodi community forums, with Lambda himself eventually chiming in to defend his actions. ““Like I said they try to find my identity and give me legal trouble. I have no choice but to protect myself. If this won’t help me to defend myself I will retire from all these and focus on my legal addons,” he explained.
Due to an extreme backlash from the community, Lambda decided to cease development for Exodus, issuing a formal apology to the community regarding his actions. In his apology and farewell letter, Lambda wrote (unedited):
“I didn’t wake up one day, after all these years and told myself, let’s try to add some calls to a specific site. It was a bad desicion I made after all this time and the stessful months I had, and I am sorry about that. As long you follow the GPL license and don’t remove Exodus credits from it I never had any problem.
Unfortunately all these months I’ve seen add-ons taking my code and removing the credits from it, like it’s their playground. I do understand that we are talking about addons that help on copyright infringement, but this is something I couldn’t tolerate anymore. Also lately I’ve seen some weird private messages from specific people threating me on presonal level. Most of them are on social media right now talking about how evil I am.
I just couldn’t deal with all this stress anymore, I made bad desicions that I shouldn’t take and I am sorry about that. I think this is the time for me too leave, this whole thing is changing me as a person, so it’s time for me to take care of myself and leave this scene once and for all.”
Lambda removed the malicious code as an update before officially stepping down. Lambda plans to continue working on other addons, while Exodus development is now moved over to TVADDONS.
At present, Exodus is good to use. As stated, the malicious code was cleared and the current development team at TVADDONS reassures the community that the addon is now safe to use.
