Recording streaming video to file

I want to save streaming video to file, (eg flash player) to watch offline or put onto dvd.

Any freeware that will do the job? Thx

Thanks, although this doesn't work with the video I'm streaming; Is there something that can capture what appears on the screen in realtime?

Do you mean YouTube or Google videos?

If so, I use Save2PC, which is very straightforward. Just create a folder to save your videos to and point to the folder when downloading. See:

The videos are stored in alphabetical order.

No, the firefox downloadhelper works fine with those. I want to copy a tv program from demand five tv.

Not sure you can it uses DRM protection so i think you can only watch them online unless you buy the licence,not 100% sure because i have never tried,i just watch them online.

Capturewizpro does a very good job but uses a LOT of drive space with video; at 10fps around 300mb a minute.
