Best Distro for playing Multimedia Files

Hi All,

I want to implement a project having following features :

1) The computer will be low end PC to be booted from Flash Card or low capacity Hard Disk and having 128 MB RAM.

2) The Computer will be used for displaying small audio/video clips in a loop. The PC should start and automatically start playing the audio/video clips based on small script file.

3) The PC will be connected to internet via usb based mobile device.

4) I should be able to remotely control the PC from my place and update the contents of audio/video files and perform any other maintenance activity on the PC via internet.

5) Provision for attaching USB Based Video Camera. The Camera will be capturing small video clips/ still images at regular interval and store in hard disk. Later on I should be able to download the captured images remotely via internet.

Please suggest suitable linux distro for achieving the above task and how to remotely control the remote PC.
