Internet: How do you know what format video you are seeing?

As I start getting more sophisticated showing videos on web, I look around to see what others are doing. But curious: I go to website, I click on video. But I want to know is this QT or Windows Media or something else? and what is bit rate? and what codec did they use? and what size am I seeing. I'm curious. But often the video just comes up within Safari and I don't know any of that. What can I do to go behind the curtain? thanks (I'm on Mac)

I don't have the answer to all of your questions, but if you're viewing a video in Quicktime selecting Window -> Show Movie Info will tell you most of the information you're looking for.

but I think you have to be able to DL the file before you can use it.
