Most likely, the video is temporarily stored in the cache folder of Internet Explorer, named Temporary Internet Files by a cryptic name, mostly without file extension.

That typically seems not to be the case. While I am
streaming a large video / audio file, or just after streaming
one, it does not show up in Temporary Internet Files under
*any* name, nor in any "Temp" folder I've looked in. Since
I have only a slow dialup connection, most streaming video
or audio downloads for several seconds, plays for a second,
then downloads for several seconds, plays for a second,
and so on.

With some such streams I can wait until the download is
done, then click the "Play" button in the browser window
and it will re-play as much as I want. In those cases, the
file is located in Temporary Internet Files. But in other
cases, clicking the "Play" button causes the stream to
start downloading from the beginning. Such streams are
apparently not cached anywhere on my computer, and
cannot be viewed or listened to at all except as tiny bits
and pieces.

Jeff is quite right.
Not all streams will be cached and therefor cannot be found in the Temporary Internet Files folder.
In such cases, you need to install a plugin that allows you, to download and save audio or video streams of a webpage.
I never use Internet Explorer and don't know, whether there is a plugin available for it.
But there is a plugin called "Flash and Video Download 1.01" for Mozilla Firefox, that provides this functionallity.
