Battery Status - Mediaserver


Wednesday 23rd of November 2011 / droidforums.net
I've been trying to test battery usage on my phone so I've been running Pandora today and I received these stats when I view battery use:5hrs 40 minutes @ 40%Pandora 36%Mediaserver 36%Display 12%Android OS 5%Phone Idle 5%Call Stand by 4%I have Smart actions for woek which have disabled gps, background sync and wifi. I believe I need Cell Data for Pandora to work, gues I could have checked that today, but if I'm not on Cell or WiFi I can;t imagine I would be getting Pandora.I can't seem to figure out what Mediaserver is and why it's running so much battery. Does anyone know what this is or how I can disable or limit iut's use?Sorry if this has been addressed already, I searched but was unable to loacte a post which seemed to fit my question.

3:45 Battery Life. WTF is going on?


Tuesday 22nd of June 2010 / androidforums.com
I disconnect my phone in the mornings from an all-night charge at 8:30am. It's been decent battery life, but I've been playing with the phone as a novelty and running it down. Now that the novelty is up, I'm now working at work and the phone just sits on my desk. The last two days, like clockwork, the phone gives me the 10% or less battery remaining before 12:30pm. 4G is off. All programs are off. No live wallpapers. Widgets running: Foursquare, time/weather HTC default thingy, and Calendar. I listened to music for 20 minutes via headphones on my train ride to work. No phone calls.Mail checks once every hour. I'd consider this very light usage.Battery usage:Cell standby: 37%Phone Idle: 34%Android System: 14%Android OS: 4%Display: 4%android.process.acore: 3%Mediaserver: 2%Calendar: 2%What gives? I'm not using the phone and it's draining as fast as it should as if I were using it constantly. FYI I have 3-4 bars of 3G where I sit, so it's not looking for service.I'm wondering if this is normal? Or should I take my phone in? I'm still within the 30 day return period and it's crossing my

Bad Battery?


Tuesday 15th of May 2012 / androidforums.com
Morning folks... I just got my Maxx on Thursday and I believe I have a bad battery.I unplugged at 100% 7.5 hours ago.Now, I'm at 30%You might ask, bradmatic, what's been using your battery?--Display 36%--Wi-Fi 18%--Android OS 9%--c:geo 8%--Cell standby 6%--Phone idle 5%--Draw Some 4%--Mediaserver 4%--rest less than 2%What's up? I'm on Wi-Fi when I'm home and at work... has been 7 of the last 7.5 hours. I even have the cell radios off when I'm at work because my building is a dead zone.This can't be right considering the batter that's allegedly inside this phone.Also, does anyone know why the battery only reports life in 10% increments?

what is mediaserver?


Sunday 11th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
My new RAZR HD has really bad battery life and in the battery settings it says that other than the screen, the majority of the battery is being used by "media server" I'm not sure what app or process this is but it has an icon with the little green android. Is this what has been killing my battery? Posted via Android Central App

Amazing!


Saturday 12th of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've had my maxx for over a month now, and so far the battery life was amazing! I've been trying to figure out what mediaserver was and why it is killing my battery! Deduced that it was that pesky Bejeweled! Now that I've deleted that damn addicting and battery killing game even when I wasn't playing it the battery life went from amazing to insane! It has been so good, that I actually thought the battery percentage read out was broken! I love this phone! ! ! That is all! Posted via Android Central App

Mediaserver battery drain


Monday 02nd of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
What exactly is "mediaserver"? Does that have anything to do with video/audio chat like on skype or playing back music on Android? Because I see it used %15 battery and I did not stream anything to or off G2.. I don't see this in Running App list, so maybe it ran for a while then stopped when I did something? I wonder what is using this..

Mediaserver draining the Xoom battery


Sunday 12th of January 2014 / androidforums.com
Recently I noticed my battery is draining very quickly and I haven't been using my Xoom any differently to normal, nor have I installed any new apps, so I checked the battery information and Mediaserver is top of the list with a high percentage.I have never had this issue before and my version of Android has not changed in a long time and won't be, because it's vanilla that Google are not updating on the Xoom any more.I don't know what has started it and reboots don't stop it.Any ideas?

Battery Issue- Help? please and thank you


Friday 28th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Recently my Galaxy S3, GT-I9305T has been playing up alot. When the battery reaches anywhere between 40-20% the screen starts flickering and then just shuts down altogether. I also get a pretty terrible battery life with only about 1 hour, usually less of on-screen time. Im not sure what 'mediaserver' is but it uses a large chunk of my battery life and it never used to. Any help is appreciated, should I buy a new battery or a whole new phone? Quite frustrating. Thanks guys Posted via Android Central App
