I can't answer the "under-development" part, but I am successfully using 
mplayer to play both raw DV streams and AVI/DV streams.  You can even use the 
-cache option to stream the DV directly from the camera.

> Can mplayer play a DV stream thats inside a quicktime file?

I've never tried this, but I assume it would be possible.  Last time I checked 
though, QuickTime can save the files with a "dv" extension, which IIRC is 
just standard raw DV.

Hope this helps,
