What is the stance on DVDs etc
Is there anything which gives a yes or no answer.
The Priesthood leaders with responsibility over the ward/stake (or district/branch) hold the keys to interpreting the handbook and if it's allowable from a church policy standpoint. In this case, I'd suggest reading Handbook 2, 13.6.6
Presumably if you hire a DJ, he would hold the necessary performance license to play music.
As for a DVD not published by the church, most are licensed "for home use". The church is not a home. You'd either need to get a license or the permission of the copyright holder to show it.
Again, laws depend on the country in question.
