As title says, does the media server drain while listening to offline music dependent on the ROM we are using? If so, then what are your results using different ROMs?

Hey mate, not sure you're in the right place? It says you sent that from a nexus 4...

Anyway, I find that music playing drain is dependent on the music player itself rather than the ROM. For example, for me, doubletwist used approximately double the battery usage per hour as Apollo music player. Have a go with a few different players, if you're concerned with battery then find a minimal player and test.

Hey there.
I'll try out music players, and waiting for others to reply.
As for the phone thing, I have both of them

I dont think so its rom dependent..
Every rom has this
However ... wid gb stock rom mediaserver used to run only for few seconds that to wid percentage (that was quite good n useful)

Bt then since ics... it has been pathetic...just do some modification in gallery and bang the phone starts heating up due to mediaserver running in background... also accompanied by battery drain.. :/
