I know this isn't myth, but... I've had good experiences with using
geexbox (geexbox.org). It's a linux/mplayer based media player distro
that is small enough to load fully in RAM. It doesnt require any
installation, so you can just boot from CD, and then eject, and load a
disk with a movie, music, pics, whatever. There is also a generator
script which lets you modify everything, then roll your own .ISO. I do
this to set up NFS mounts where my media is stored, and can use
geexbox from any machine on my network that has a network connection
and optical drive without any commitment. check it out.
