there are 2 types of dv avi files: one with audio and video streams, audio
is usually pcm, video is DV, it's supported (by 2 win32 dll codec).
the other format is non-standard avi, it has only 1 'generic' type stream,
and it has a raw dv stream splitted to packet. this later type is not
supported by mplayer yet. anywya, if you implement raw dv demuxer, it can
work, by joining avi demuxer's output to your demuxer.
(same way as for ogg/vorbis stream in avi files)

ok. then just duplicate the packets...
and implement ad_libdv or similar to decode audio
