    Hi all,

    I heard that it's possible to capture streaming video.
    Is this true?
    If so, what utility do I need (for Windows XP)?

    Thanks!

    What streaming from where?
    It makes a big difference.

    The best place to start is the VideoDownloader plug-in for Firefox but VLC
    Media Player also has stream capture capabilities.

    Some "streams" are in Flash format which poses difference issues.

    In all cases, other than Google, YouTube, etc, it's worth checking the
    source of the webpage, as often careless coding makes it easy to pick-up the
    source video file directly.
