Media Distro

I used to use linux alot but havnt for nearly a year. I'm looking to move back but need a good distro. I used to like fedra but don't know if it will give me what i need. Basicly i need MP3, AVI, MP4 and DivX playback and a good flash player (i dont know if its the case not but before I had a lot of problems with linux and flash.)

If any one can point me in the right direction I'd love it.

The only other things I use loads of on the computer is PaintShop pro and .net for asp and visual basic etc but I realise I will have to use windows for these.

Every distro can have the playback support you want and the flashplayer too so pick any you like.

Go with Fedora if you have experience using it.


avi, flash, media, mp3
