well, in general I do not have the slightest idea about dv. I just
remembered that I once had to rename a dv file in order for it to be
recognized by ffplay. Now, what leaves to be done is to check what
ffplay actually does with this file, maybe it really deduces the codec
from the extension. Maybe mplayer has a better way to detect what the
file actually is. If it is really quicktime or not.
