I've been looking.
I keep finding claims that Fedora live CD's exist,
but not actual images.

I did find a C6 live CD.
No go.
Without additional installs, it would not even try.
After accepting its offers to install dragon and totem,
it still would not play any videos.
... not working  falling back to default.
The default was blank.

To be clear:
flv and avi caused it to complain about the lack of mp4 codecs.

Is there something dragon or totem will play out of the box?
