When shooting video (or using live view in general), DSLR becomes a mirrorless camera.    Mirror is locked in up position, viewfinder is blacked out, and mechanical shutter is open.    So there is no difference between a DSLR and a mirrorless when in video mode.

Professional cinematography cameras utilized a rotating round mirror with cutouts, placed at 45 degrees into the optical path.    Having anything of the sort in an SLR would make it prohibitively bulky.
