Yes, you have the choices you listed, but 192.168.1.xx and the computername will only work from within your LAN, and 127.0.0.1 will only work on the same machine. Your DynDNS hostname and external (public, WAN) IP address will work from outside, for routers supporting loopback also from inside your LAN. You can use any of those, giving the conditions I have listed.
Regarding source and destination ports, the source port is probably the port you use to call your LAN from outside, and the destination port is the one your webcam is listening on. You router apparently supports port translation, so you can (but don't need to) use a different port calling from outside than is used inside your LAN. But you could also take the same port number for both.
Regarding your troubles accessing your LAN from outside, you may want to work through this wiki entry.

Have you read through the wiki article RobBlitz linked to? If not then please do so.
When you configured the port forwarding, you did forward it to the IP of the DVR? You can access the DVR from another computer on the network?

If you are trying to connect via your own IP address when at your home location, you will have to set your router to allow looping to see the webcam. You would probably be able to see the web cam without looping enabled from another IP address location.
