Sabrelite (BD-SL-i.MX6) distro + video recorder

Hello,

 

I bought a Sabrelite board from element 14.

http://www.element14.com/community/community/knode/single-board_computers/sabrelite

 

I want to build a small video recorder with this board. (To record one USB webcam or one MIPI / CSI camera).

I would like to know which distro is better for my needs. Right now, I think I only need video encoding, camera support, SD logging and GUI is optional.

 

Can somebody give me some hints regarding the plus/minus of the following distro options:

 

1) Yocto

2) buildroot

Build Linux System for IMX6Q Sabre Lite - Linuxpedia

3) Ubuntu / Debian

4)  Linaro (Debian?)

5) timesys

Thanks
