Question Distribution for video playback on a thinclient


I have some hp thinclients (hp 5710) that came with windows xpe (embeded edition), I want to switch them to linux, I use them to playback video in some 19" monitors located in differente places, so I need a lite distribution, easy to setup that works well with very limited computers. I just need it to play the videos automatically when I start the computers and keep them on a loop all day, very day .

The Specs for the computers are:
  • Processor: Transmeta Crusoe TM5800 800 MHz
  • Installed RAM 256 MB (some with 512)
  • Video Memory: 16 MB
  • ATA Flash 256 MB
  • USB Ports 4

I've tried with Slax, but maybe someone can sugest me a distribution focused on this specific problem.

I'm thinking maybe in run the OS from a 4 GbUSB Memory, with the videos on it too.

I can use some advices on the video codec, and player too.

Thanks in advance.
