If you want a complete open source and free solution, try mplayer from
There are binaries for windows (I'm assuming you use that).

simply invoke mplayer from commandline: mplayer -dumpstream <url>.
This simply dumps the stream to C:\stream.dump or %mplayer_dir%\stream.dump without altering it in any way.
It can dump almost every stream, since mplayer is able to play almost every video format that's out there.
You can even extend the capabiliies of mplayer if you download and extract it to the mplayer install path to the "codecs" folder.

Here's a gui version: but you will still need to invoke mpalyer from the commandline with the -dumpstream parameter!

"MPlayer is a movie player for Linux (runs on many other Unices, and non-x86 CPUs, see Ports). It plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM, RoQ, PVA, Matroska files, supported by many native, XAnim, RealPlayer, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch Video CD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, RealMedia, Sorenson, Theora, and MPEG-4 (DivX) movies, too."

You can even rip .rm / wmv or other bad formats. Completely free of charge.

Schedule recording is only possible with a 3rd party software.
Some free ones are available.

one very easy way (if you already have capture software you are using) plug your audio out into your MIC.  works every time for me.  Ripping the video no sound - Green to Red and its all good.  (you may have to adjust the volume output but it’s easy and doesn’t require any additional software)

BTW the links above link to some GREAT software!

(remember to un-mute your MIC!!)
