USB flash drive distro with media codecs galore

Forums: 

Hi,

I am looking for a distro that runs from a usb flash drive that supports many media formats from within the web browser.

Watching sport via internet requires quite some media support and all the distro's I have tried so far (Mint, openSuse, Puppy) don't seem to support the ones I need, or at least I cannot get necessary protocols/players installed.

Basically the 3 most important formats that I need supported are:
Mediaplayer: They all can play this one except for when the protocol is MMS (Mint fell down here)
Sopcast: I couldn't get any to support this.
Veetle: I can only get openSuse to support this on my desktop but not on the usb flash drive.

Has anybody got experience with which distro can run persistently from a usb flash drive and where the installation of the above is easily done?

Thanks for any help.
