Note that starting with Windows Media Player 9 Series, Windows Media Services 9 Series and Windows Server 2003 RTSP Protocol is now the default protocol for streaming Windows Media. But now few programs support RTSP.

Also note that some programs allow to record not only Windows Media Streams, but also Real Video, Real Audio and Quick Time Video Streams.

WM Recorder 10.x (Shareware/Windows
  
WM Recorder records any Windows Media? video and audio. It works by watching internet activity relating to Window Media Player, and assembling the streamed data as an ASF file, which can then be played using Windows Media Player on your PC or many portable devices. Other non-asf media files as MP3, MPEG, AVI or WAV can also be recorded.

As a VCR style recorder WM Recorder is extremely easy to use. With just one click, any streamed Windows Media? link is saved as a recorded file on your PC automatically.

WM Recorder can record almost any Windows Media Stream.
In some cases only WM Recorder in Browse Mode can record a Windows Media stream because it is the only stream recorder using a proxy cache to record what Windows Media Player is playing!
