Image With Only VLC

Fri Sep 01, 2017 2:53 am

All I need is the Pi 3 to load to VLC with a streaming address. Any images with only VLC? I could install Raspbian and install VLC but that would be a lot of resources that I don't need

While Raspbian has things you don't need, you do need the kernel to run anything at all, as well as other bits and pieces. Your best bet is to build and SD card with Raspbian (or Raspbian Lite if you don't need the GUI desktop to run VLC) and then start removing anything obvious that you don't need or want. When you have it pared down, take a backup so you don't have to do the whole exercise every time.
