Exodus is one of the most popular video addons for Kodi Media Center, it has a great set of sources and a wonderful user interface but there is no library integration or favorites list. Instead, Exodus uses the Trakt.tv service to keep track of your TV shows and movies.
In this tutorial we are going to take a look at Trakt.tv and how to use it with Exodus. If you haven’t installed Exodus, read our guide on How to install Exodus on Kodi and come back here when you are ready. You’ll also need a Trakt.tv account, go ahead and create one now, it’s free.
Quick Intro to Trakt
Trakt.tv is a free service that let’s you organize your favorite TV shows and movies and keep track of what you’re watching. It integrates with a lot of popular media center software and you can use it from your browser or smartphone. We are going to focus on two specific Trakt features: Collection and Lists.
Be aware that the Watchlist is meant to be a temporary list, this means that the movies and shows on this list will be automatically removed once they are marked as watched. On the other hand, the Collection and custom lists are persistent.
Try adding a couple of shows to your collection and check out the other features to familiarize yourself with Trakt. Once you are ready let’s switch to Kodi.
Exodus and Trakt
Now let’s configure Exodus to use Trakt, open Kodi and navigate to Exodus Main Menu.
Activate your Trakt account on all your devices with Kodi and Exodus to keep them synchronized.
If you’ve used Exodus for a while you’ll probably have a lot of items already marked as watched on Kodi, Exodus will only synchronize the items you play after setting indicators to Trakt. To sync everything you need to install the official Trakt addon on “Kodi Add-on Repository” > “Program add-ons”.
The official Trakt addon will automatically scrobble Kodi and synchronize all watched items, it’ll also let you rate the shows and movies you after you watch them.
You might want to use a customizable skin and simulate library integration style menus to get access to your Trakt collection directly from the home screen. Check our guides on how to create custom menu items with Amber, Aeon Nox or Estuary Mod.
