Make Kodi download Movies and TV Shows to your local machine
In this guide, we are going to enable downloading in Kodi, which will allow you to download Movies and TV Shows from the Exodus add-on to your local machine.
Add-ons like Exodus are out of date. However you can check the same settings area of whatever addon you are currently using to see if this works. In a lot of cases, it does.
This will allow you to download media files and watch them without being connected to the internet, or without any buffering issues or source finding.
First, you will need to ensure that you have the Exodus add-on installed, if you haven’t, check out our guide for how to install Exodus.
This guide also works with Genesis Reborn, for if you’re having problems with Kodi.
We will be creating this tutorial using Kodi V17 Krypton, however the process is the same if you’re using Kodi V16 Jarvis.
If you’re unfamiliar with Kodi or new, a detailed guide is below the instructions including images.
Before we startPwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
- Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
- Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
- Make your online presence anonymous.
- Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.
If you’re using Genesis Reborn over Exodus, just repeat the same steps but in the Genesis Reborn add-on instead.
- Go to addons > Video Addons > Open Exodus
- Select Tools from the first menu
- In the next menu, choose “EXODUS: Downloads”
- Enable Downloads, ensure this is enabled
- Click “Movies” and choose a directory where you’d like downloaded files to go
- Do the same for TV Shows
- Once you have chosen a directory for both objects, press “OK”
- Now find the media you wish to download through Exodus, either Movie or TV Show
- Load the sources list, and open the context menu on one of the sources, by either Right clicking or pressing “C”
- Press the “Download” button and confirm! The file will be in your chosen directory once completed.
