ahh right, well for that you can try firefox extensions like VideoDownloader. alternatively you can often just use wget or curl to pull any individual file in a url if it's otherwise resisting it. also anything you can play within mplayer can be "dumped" to disk by maplyer instead of just playing it.

you need to know the stream URL. As mentioned you can use curl or wget to get the info. Once you get the actual stream info you can use mplayer to record the stream.

Record and save the stream:
mplayer -playlist http://www.url/stream.asx -ao pcm:file=
/location/to/save/file.wav -vc dummy -vo null ;


To play the stream to make sure its correct just do:
mplayer -playlist http://www.url/stream.asx

replace http://www.url/stream.asx with the URL you find using wget/curl
