Just for the archives, the file extension is a poor indicator of the
file type and was originally meant more as information for humans.
Fortunately smart programs (like mplayer or vlc) don't rely much on it.

Yes, the 'file' utility is a much better indicator of the file type ("file filename.ext"). I haven't seen it written anywhere, but believe that the same capability is built into the shell, at least into bash.
