GeeXboX is a free embedded Linux distribution which aims at turning your computer into a so called HTPC (Home Theater PC) or Media Center. It targets multiple devices, from regular x86 or PowerPC based computers to ARM and MIPS embedded devices.
Despite his tiny size, the distribution comes with a complete and automatic hardware detection, not requiring any driver to be added. It supports playback of nearly any kind of audio/video and image files and all known codecs and containers are shipped in, allowing playing them through various physical supports, either being CD, DVD, Blu-ray HDD, LAN or Internet.
