does mint have a live-cd ?
they are based in ireland which is a non-interpol country so they can distribute with codecs already rolled in without breaking the law.
have you considered live-usb (like fedora live-usb) so you can install stuff and save.
else you will have to install players and codecs everytime you reboot.
