Recently I started getting comments from readers that they’re having an issue with Exodus.  Each person described it the same way.  In Exodus, when they play a TV show episode, it always plays the first episode of the series instead of the episode that was selected.  They ask how they can fix Exodus.

At the first complaint, I thought it may have been a fluke, but then after 3 identical complaints, I realize that this must be a more widespread issue.  So, I investigated and found the solutions.

How to fix the Exodus first episode issue

Unchecking providers in Kodi Exodus settingsThe issue is caused by just a few providers configured in the Exodus add-on.  If you have auto-play turned on, it may be choosing the same faulty provider each time.  To fix it,…

  • Go into the Exodus add-on settings screen
  • Go to Providers
  • Uncheck YMOVIES, MOVIESHD, and TORBA
  • Hit OK

Now, it will select from the other providers when you play an episode, and you should have better luck.  If the issue happens again, please take note of which provider was selected and let me know in the comments and I’ll update this post.

This was never an issue if using Real-Debrid

The reason why I thought it must have been a fluke was because I’m using Real-Debrid so a Real-Debrid provider is always selected when I play episodes.

If you don’t use Real-Debrid (and you probably don’t if you’re reading this post), you have to try it.  It will make your Exodus experience virtually flawless.  No bad links, no buffering… you can just turn on auto-play and it works every time.

    I’ve just started getting this trouble with Covenant. I was getting “no stream available” and was down to only three providers for one particular episode of a show I wanted to watch (there had been 5 providers the night before for the same episode), so I updated Covenant to the latest version. Now I’m showing lots of providers but whichever episode I try, it only plays episode one.
    Looks like I might have to try Real-Debrid.

        Hi Nathan, yes, I signed up for Real-Debrid and it fixed it for three episodes and now it’s back to streaming episode 1 only again. I haven’t taken out a subscription to Real-Debrid, only created an account.

            I signed up for real-debrid even paid for a premium account it fixed this issue for about 3 episodes now it’s back to the same problem playing the first episode of the season no matter what episode your on. Any suggestions?

            That was from a Debrid source? Did you see the provider on the link that you selected? If you find that it’s having this issue again, take note of the provider of that link. Then, go into your add-on’s settings and disable that provider.

    I found there is no Exodus or Covenant but I’m using Placenta now. I also found a new build that works very well and it called “nolimitsbuilds” so everyone should check it out. When using the nolimitsbuilds there are several other addons that have track in them and they work well also and work independently from each other.

    Covenant has been replaced with Incursion and it works great but I still have problems with “No Stream Available” but now I understand I will need to sign up for a premium account and also go into the settings and UNcheck ymovies,movieshd, and torba.
