Limp

Linux Multimedia Player is a tiny Linux-based live distribution that converts your computer into a multimedia player. It supports most of the known formats (MPEG 1 and 2, DivX, WMV, qt-mov, Real, MP3, WAV, WMA, Ogg, VCD, and DVD), acts as an MP3 streaming server, auto-detects the various partitions on IDE, SATA, and SCSI hard disks, and auto-detects sound, video, and network cards. It supports all cards as of kernel 2.6.21. Network support can be configured in the GUI. Options are menu-driven and require no knowledge of Linux.
