Sorry to disappoint you, but .dsf looks like it may be a sound file.

Have you tried VLC? It's not on the list of supported formats, but still might be worth a try - and always useful to have VLC installed anyway.

Download FFMPEG (there are sources as well as binaries for every system)

then do this: ffmpeg -i myvideo.dsf

It will show you what codecs are in there. After you know which, you can try getting that codec and playing the file.
