I've had full-speed video capture success with CamStudio, which is the core of Adobe Captivate.

The old CamStudio is now open source, so it's definitely worth a test drive to see if it will fit your needs.

"AloeCam manages and displays live camera images from around the Internet. The image from each webcam is displayed in a resizable window with a gamma correction control. The pictures can be saved to your hard disk automatically, with a variety of folder and filename options. AloeCam can also monitor webcams for you and open a window and/or play an alarm sound when new images are detected. Proxies are supported, as are Webcam sites that require a username and password for access.
AloeCam can monitor and display any number of Webcams at once, and can open a camera's Web site in your Web browser. AloeCam features a professional Windows interface and is designed to be easy to install and uninstall. Now AloeCam allows AloeCam to run in the background as a system tray icon"

You can typically grab flat video FLV (like what YouTube uses) out of your browser's cache folder.  However, streams like these use RTMP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Time_Messaging_Protocol) over a Flash media server, so that technique won't work and you'll need some specialized software to convert the stream into something save-able.

I haven't used any RTMP stream capture software myself, but these look the most promising:

I'm using Techsmith Camtasia Studio for creating video tutorials for customers, you can choose the framerate you need for recording.

And i'm using Fraps for recording in games most games running 30 to 60FPS.

And if you want something for web broadcast you can take a look at http://www.livestream.com/ former mogulus.com.
