Windows Media video (WMV direct link) - low quality
HTML5 video (MP4 direct link) - medium quality on old videos (< 2014), high quality on new videos
The Smooth Streaming version is in quite good quality (usually 1024x576 or 768x432 for old videos) but it's harder to download. You can read on my blog how to download Smooth Streaming videos using Linux (in Italian). New MP4 videos, starting from around 2014, are also in the same quality.
This script also works on the popular website Witty TV, because they embed videos from Video Mediaset.
Starting from version 6.0, the script shows M3U8 URLs for live streams of each channel of the Mediaset network.
I would like to truly express my gratitude to potacchione, the author of RaiMediasetLa7Video (no longer working on the Mediaset site) for creating his script and providing the base URL from which the informations are gathered.
I would also like to thank Daniele Giudice for suggesting and discussing the feature of M3U8 extraction for live streams.
