      The reasons may vary, the most common are lost connection from the server and insufficient storage. Unfortunately, there is no resume feature, and you have to re-download for the full movie (recommended to download from other servers)

      I must say, Exodus download progress is far from perfect. It only pops up if the download reach multiple 10%. In this case, you might not notice the failure message since it was only popped up for few seconds. Make sure the download is finished, there should be a notification at the top-right corner Kodi window once the download is completed (100%). Monitoring your internet download bandwidth should be a wise option to make sure the progress keeps going. You can use Net Meter or other similar tools. For windows user, as alternative you can monitor the bandwidth using task manager > networking

      Have you try restart your phone? On touch screen devices, tap and hold on Exodus should make the context menus pop up. If you are trying to set the download folder location without using tap and hold (right click) head to Home Page > Add-ons > Video add-ons > Exodus > Tools > Exodus: Downloads. However to download from selected server, you have to use context menu (tap hold on touch screen device, C on keyboard, right click on Mouse, or press Menu on remote control)

      Go to Home Page > Add-ons > Video add-ons > Exodus > Tools > Exodus: Downloads. You will see a window the same as point number 5 on the tutorial. Tap Movies then locate your folder for download. Thats it, do the same for TV folder.

    What do you mean by tap movies then locate Folder for download? There are heaps of folders under root,but none seem to work. I don’t remember this being so difficult in previous versions. . .

      Before enabling the download option, Exodus requires you to set the folder location for saving the movies. And steps above is the way to do it

    After selecting server, download isn’t appearing in menu as an option. Have double checked dowloads are ‘enabled’.

        I have plenty of storage and I can stream, but no longer can download for offline viewing. Keep getting failures of no file size or no steam available or server not responding. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Any other ideas?

    Hellas, mbv mijn x96 android Player met kodi en Exodus kan ik niets downloaden! Het systeem geeft met pop-ups aan dat er gedownload wordt én ook een GEREED melding, maar er is géén download te vinden. niet op intern geheugen, niet op extern geheugen, in geen enkele map die ik aanmaak of al op de stick op geheugenkaart stond. Ook andere apps met downloadfunctie reageren hetzelfde, wat is het probleem ?

    Is there a way to see the progress besides the intervals so we can know if it has failed?

    Are there any way to limit the download notification to say every 50% or perhaps move it to less intrusive place?
