Light weight Linux media player OS for flash online videos


Hi

I am looking for a light weight media player OS front end to play flash video from the internet in full screen. stuff like youtube and Iplayer.

the machine I will be using has 700mhz CPU 256Mg ram.

IThe machine works great with geexbox but geexbox won't play flash video from the internet as far as I know.

It works great with puppy linux but flash video is not full screen.

Dos anyone have any other ideas of distros I could try.

Thanks

Vector Linux should run great on that system. As well as Slackware.
