Can you deny certain file types (.mpg, .mpeg, ect..) from being created on a share?

OK, so here's the deal. My users are putting large videos onto my servers, even after i tell them not too. So every few monthes i have to do a search for videos and remove them from my servers (2000, 2003 Standard, and 2003 SBS standard). Is there a way i can setup to deny certain file types from being put on my server shares and give my users a message saying 'Nope, can't do that'?
One way i was thinking of is I can add a rule to my antivirus to catch and quarentine all video extentions(.mpeg,.mpg, .avi, ect), but is there any better way? I can't really setup a disk quota because my engineers sometimes work with VERY large files, so that wouldn't really work.
