How to Fix Exodus Search Not Working on Kodi

Is Exodus search not working on Kodi?

Kodi is arguably the best open-source media player that is compatible with all major platforms. With Kodi, you can easily stream videos, podcasts, TV shows, movies, and more in a single app.

Combining these features with customizable options and add-ons makes your whole experience worthwhile. 

One of the most used add-ons for Kodi is Exodus. This add-on offers free and unlimited access to movies and TV shows, search functions, filtering options, and lots of helpful features. While the Exodus V8 version was discontinued, Exodus Redux is still available. 

If you are here, you’re probably trying to use the search function on Exodus, but it’s not working on Kodi. 

Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. 

Today, we’ve decided to make a guide for fixing the Exodus search function if it’s not working on Kodi. 

Let’s get started!

1. Restart Your Device. 

If the search feature on Exodus is not working, the first thing that you should do is restart your device. While this may sound simple, restarting your system allows your device to reload all of its resources and fix temporary errors that may have occurred during run time. 

On Windows, here’s what you need to do to restart your system: 

  1. First, go to the Start Menu on the Taskbar
  2. After that, access the Power Options tab. 
  3. Lastly, click the Restart option to reboot your computer. 
Restart Windows

For macOS users, follow the steps below to restart your computer: 

  1. On your Mac, access the Apple Menu located at the top-left corner of your display. 
  2. Next, choose the Restart option from the drop-down menu. 
  3. Finally, click the Restart button on the dialog box to confirm your action.

After restarting your device, go back to Kodi and see if the search feature on the Exodus add-on is now working. 

2. Delete Kodi Cache. 

Another reason why the search feature on the Exodus add-on is not working is if Kodi’s cache got corrupted. You can fix this by clearing Kodi’s cache to ensure there are no corrupted data on your system. 

For Windows, here’s how you can clear Kodi’s cache: 

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows + R keys to open the Run Command
  2. After that, type ‘%temp%’ and click OK to open the folder. 
  3. Finally, select all the files inside the folder and delete them.

3. Change Your Timeout Settings. 

Exodus on Kodi has a feature that lets you set a specific time before the search engine stops looking for sources. However, you may have set the timeout setting too short, which stops the search engine before it can even fetch sources. 

To fix this, follow the guide below to change your timeout settings: 

  1. On Kodi, go to Add-Ons and click on My Add-Ons
  2. After that, access the Video Add-Ons tab and open Exodus
  3. Now, go to Tools and choose General
  4. Finally, change the Providers Timeout option to 30-45 seconds and save the changes. 

Once done, try using the search function on Exodus to check if the problem is solved. 

4. Update Exodus. 

Add-ons on Kodi also receive updates from their developers to patch bugs and optimize its performance. If a feature on Exodus is not working, try to check if there’s a new build for the add-on. 

Check out the steps below to update add-ons on Kodi: 

  1. On Kodi, go to the Add-Ons tab and click on My Add-Ons
  2. After that, open the Video Add-Ons tab and choose Exodus
  3. Next, click on Versions and select the latest build possible. 
  4. Finally, go to the previous page and enable Auto-Update

After updating Exodus, try using the search function again to check if the problem is solved.

 

5. Reinstall Exodus. 

If Exodus search is still not working on Kodi, the add-on is probably not installed correctly on your system. It’s also possible that some of its files got corrupted due to bugs and glitches on the platform. 

To fix this, follow the steps below to reinstall Exodus on Kodi: 

  1. First, go to the Add-Ons tab on Kodi
  2. Now, click on My Add-Ons and access the Video Add-Ons tab. 
  3. Lastly, select Exodus and click on Uninstall
