NFT: Question about Exodus streams on KODI

Tony in Tampa : 7/12/2017 9:15 am
I just purchase an X96 Smart TV box running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. I am new to these media players and researched the boxes and set up via You Tube. I was able to connect to and access the internet and other apps including KODI. But unlike the list of streaming videos I saw displayed in EXODUS in the YouTube demos, the movie streams in Exodus on my X96 are not being offered in HD or specifically in 1080p. I have come across a few that say HD or 1080p but the stream is SD.

Is it that Exodus really does not have that many full HD movies and I should try another add-on or could it be my set up of the smart tv box? Should I uninstall Exodus and re-install?

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.
keep in mind

Exodus is showing pirated stuff. So you are hit or miss whether or not it's actually in HD or not. Depends on the stream.
Try installing this build

It's The Beast, it loads the better add ons and is updated regularly.

and all Exodus streams that are not cams have been in full 1080p for me.
Initially Exodus was consistent with it's HD offerings

now I feel like even those labeled as HD are coming in poorly

Kodi is dying a slow death. Dish Network was starting to bring lawsuits against the addon developers so they stopped supporting their addons and disappeared.
Certain KODI..

apps seem to be going dormant. I used to use Stream All The Sources as my go to for movies and it isn't working. 123Movies is hit or miss anymore.

Pro Sports is down

Just Google sports add-ons for Kodi at a bunch of pop up and you know give you the directions to download them.. all they're doing is rebranding and changing their names around
I use

Exodus as my go to movie stream through my Firestick.

Lot of variables. Obviously the newer the movie, the less probability of there being an HD/1080P stream. I keep my expectations low on movies that are still in theaters or just out. For example, it took me a few months to find a solid HD stream of Get Out, even if the stream was labeled as "HD."

For the older movies, I've pretty much seen all with the 1080P option, and I can confirm it's been pretty spot on. In the last month or two, I've watched The Martian, Arrival, and Secret Life of Pets, with no issue at all.
Last weekend..

there was a HD stream of Wonder Woman. It had Korean subtitles, but still - HD.

Some of the newer movies take time. Still no HD stream for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Baby Driver was full on CAM from a theater - so I'll just wait until they get to HD before watching.

It is hit or miss, but any movie out more than 6 months likely has not just a HD stream, but a 1080 stream too.

Kodi is just fine. People using it as a front end for all of their local content have zero issues.

The Kodi team are not the ones who develop the offending apps. Further, any lawsuit against them would fail anyway. It is not illegal to view pirated streams.

True, I should have clarified by saying "Kodi addons are dying a slow death"

Yep, that you're definitely correct on. First it was Phoenix, now it's Exodus. SportsDevil is having issues as well.

My guess is that Amazon will eventually find a way to lock down the OS so that they brick if non-play store apps get installed or something.

Not much can be done though if one wants to use a PC, nVidea Shield, etc., but the extra hoops to jump through is probably a sufficient enough deterrent for most.
The third party Kodi add-ons are not dying

I use Exodus regularly and have found that if you can purchase the Blue Ray and/or can get it on demand from somewhere else, you will have a pretty good HD/1080p stream available. If its in the theater still then its very hit/miss...I have also found that when movies get sent to the academy for awards consideration, those movies get put up in good HD quality. Start looking for those around October.

Thats what makes its less appealing.. No one wants to keep adding new add-ons weekly to get one or 2 movies in before new ones have to be installed. Overall Kodi experience has gone south for the streamers.. the OP should have done this a while ago..
Not a KODI user...  
Dan in the Springs : 7/14/2017 9:32 am : link
but I always wonder why the streamers would spend time and effort to provide media when there appears to be no revenue from it at all. If nobody is paying anything - how do they make it worth their while to do the work they do?

I'm both ignorant and suspicious about the tools used. Is there any way there could be some back-door benefits to the streamers or add-ons?
