You probably won't have to determine a file extension, you only need the 
MIME type for streaming video.

Do you know which type of video it is (e.g. RealPlayer, M$MP, etc)?

For RealPlayer (if it uses the plugin), it is: audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin

NOTE: yes for historical reasons (I guess) it is under: "audio".

For M$ (if it uses the plugin), it is: video/x-ms-asf-plugin

If it isn't a type that uses the plugin, you can get the file extension by 
right clicking the link and choosing: "Copy Link Location" and examining 
the link.
