Emby app starts on its own

Recommended Posts

The app will open seeming randomly.  I just had it open about 10 times in a row.  My kids are preparing for a trip and had been downloading things to watch so on a hunch I talked with them and one of them was adding/removing downloads at that time.  My guess is that the server is pinging all of the clients when a download action is initiated?  They were NOT downloading to my device.

 

Doing some quick tests, from the server I created a download to my device, and emby started on my device.  That's not a big deal since it is to my device.  Adding a download to another device did NOT open the app on my device.  However removing the download from the other device via the server from their device DID open the app on my device.

Seems to only affect the Android client.  My child with an iPhone has not noticed the problem.

Hope that helps.

I'm still seeing this issue on version 3.1.23, for which the change notes said it would be fixed (kudos for including actual change notes and not just the crappy "we're continuously making your experience worse by removing everything you like and introducing new bugs...", but that's besides the point.) Seeing as this bug causes the app to behave like malware I'd say I'm really surprised it hasn't been fixed after more than two months... If this type of bug were to happen with any of the startups I've worked at everyone would be working night and day until it was fixed.

It's fixed in the .24 versions above so try installing that.

But be aware it's "upgrades" to the .23 version so maybe turn off auto updates for now.
