The Lab Kodi add-on is another fork of Exodus giving you all the usual stuff, but keeps it simple.

Here’s what the main screen looks like.

In fact, it’s so simple, it does seem to be missing features.  One feature that I noticed was missing was the feature that automatically tries the next link if the current link is bad.  It feels a little bit like the Genesis days where you had to click on each link one at a time until you found one that works.

But, it’s still another option we all have available.

Enable Debrid Providers

If you subscribe to a debrid provider like Real-Debrid, you will need to enable it.  It will use the universal resolver settings, so you don’t need to pair again, but for some reason, they have a toggle for it and default it to off.

Go to Tools > SETTINGS: Providers and Enable Debrid Providers.
