Exodus Update Broke Real-Debrid; How to Fix

Exodus 3.1.8 Broke Real-Debrid Configuration

If you use Exodus with Real-Debrid like I do, you may have noticed that the Real-Debrid sources have disappeared this past week.  Without Real-Debrid, you’ve been left with all the regular public links that are a lot more “hit and miss” when it comes to their quality and bandwidth.

How to Fix Exodus Only Playing First Episode of Series

Exodus on Kodi

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.

New Episodes on Kodi Home Screen with Arctic Zephyr / Exodus / Trakt

This tutorial will show you how to use the Arctic Zephyr skin on Kodi to show the latest episodes from your shows in Exodus according to your Trakt.tv lists.

Back when I used to use Genesis or SALTS, I primarily used Kodi by browsing the video library with the “library integration” feature that was available in those add-ons.  I even wrote tutorials on How to Merge Kodi Streaming Add-ons into the Video Library and how to Sync Genesis TV & Movie Libraries Across Multiple Kodi HTPCs.

However, these days, I’m using Exodus which doesn’t have library integration.  The developer of Exodus, lambda, left out the library integration feature on purpose because the tight integration with Trakt.tv is so much better.

I agree with the statement that Trakt.tv is better.  However, one feature that I missed by not having library integration was the ability to browse my favorite shows (from a streaming add-on) in the Kodi video library.

Now that I’m using Exodus, my video library is empty and useless.

Well, that doesn’t mean I can’t have an awesome Kodi home screen that dynamically pulls in new episodes from my favorite TV shows as configured in my Trakt.tv account.  Here’s a tutorial on how to do it.

If you get a lot of “No Stream Available” error messages with or buffering issues when using Kodi streaming add-ons like Exodus or SALTS, you’re not alone.

Kodi add-ons like those have been notorious for making people try source link after source link until they find one that works.  At times, it can become quite tedious and starts to make you wonder if all this Kodi streaming stuff is worth the hassle.

Well, there’s a solution, and it’s called Real-Debrid.
