Add-on Showcase – 13Clowns Video – Updated

This part seems to get repetitive as we get more forks (clones) of the same add-ons. This is just another one but with worthy mentions. First and foremost, it includes a new scraper based on a community project which aims to be even more reliable than Lambdascrapers which was used in Exodus Redux. Lambdascrapers has been abandoned and will not be seeing any more updates. This add-on features several filters such as Superhero Movies, Car Movie Collections, which make finding certain movies easier. Aside from that, Auto-Play can be enabled by following the steps below the install guide. This will make this add-on feel as if you were using a streaming service not to be mentioned here. Follow the instructions below to install the add-on yourself.

Enable Auto Play

The newest version has removed auto play from being the default action. Below are the steps to enabling it again. Although auto play is nice to have, I like to choose my own links because I know some work better than others. This is also helpful if you have slower internet allowing you to choose links with lesser quality.

1) Open 13Clowns Video
2) Go to Tools
3) Select SETTINGS: Playback
4) Change Set Auto-Play, Directory or Dialog to Auto Play
5) Select OK
