Kodi VenomKodi Venom

Venom is a new and more frequently updated Exodus fork, one of the bests of its kind. After I-A-C stopped updating Exodus Redux, Venom has become a great go-to movies & TV shows addon for many. Compared with its countless predecessors, Venom has a similar structure and use OpenScrapers as well but more concise and has sorted many loose ends.

What's more, Venom specially features auto playback, meaning users don't have to individually pick sources while watching, Venom will automatically decide what's on next. All in all, Venom is a great addon that movie lovers should totally have a try.

Given its outstanding performance and frequent updating, we've put Venom on our Best Kodi Addons list, movies and TV shows addons section.

Please note that Venom and Fen addon now uses My Accounts script to manage user accounts. You can find it from Add-ons > Video add-ons > Right-click (long press the select button on a remote or C on a keyboard) on Venom > Dependencies > My Accounts.
