Question [Q] Is it safe to freeze/remove protected media server?

I noticed that the protected media scanner takes up a lot of battery.
so last night I froze it. so far I did notice a lot more battery but I haven't noticed what it does.

can someone please tell me if its OK to freeze it or will I need it in the future? Or is there another way to make protectedmediascanner take up less battery life?

thanks in advance

I'm not completely sure but its used by pictures, movies, youtube, anything media related. Some people say if it's disabled, it will cause more problems, sometimes delayed problems.

I've read that corrupted media files can cause it to go nuts and suck more battery than a thai hooker.
