Exodus Redux Kodi Add-on featured image

In this guide, we are going to install Exodus on Kodi. Exodus was once one of the most popular Kodi add-ons but its development ended a couple of years ago. Since then, it has been forked by many developers to create new add-ons, some of them are currently very popular. Let’s talk about two specific exodus-based add-ons, Exodus Redux and Exodus V8.

Exodus V8 or Exodus Redux. Which one to choose?

Both are great add-ons, they feature all the functionality and aesthetics of the original Exodus but also each one have their pros and cons.

Exodus Redux is very popular but it hasn’t been updated in a while. It still works mostly because it uses OpenScrapers, a well-maintained set of scrapers that is also used by other add-ons.

On the other hand, Exodus v8 is regularly updated but some of its dependencies may be incompatible with some add-ons.

Even if both add-ons look similar they are a bit different under the hood. To find and stream sources, Exodus Redux uses OpenScrapers and ResolveURL while Exodus V8 uses ExoScrapers and URLResolver, that’s why both add-ons will return different results when searching for the same content.

You can install both Exodus Redux and Exodus V8 on the same device to compare and decide which one works best for you.
