Need to stream capture a video

I use a training video but find my wireless modem's monthly limit will be reached well before ther end of the month. So I'd like to go out for free wireless and download the video and capture it for later viewing from home, where I do not have broadband.

Is this illegal? I wouldn't do it if it were.

Can I only capture at the speed of playing it? In  that case, I will watch it and not need to watch it a second time.

Curious of my options.

If you are downloading video and watching yourself and not distributing it to others or  on internet then I don't think there should be any issue to this

But is it even possible, if they do not provide a feature to download the movie? If I need to sit in a cafe and download it at the viewing rate, then I gain nothing and may as well watch it at the cafe, where wireless is free.

yes it is possible.  Is it legal? I can not answer that one with the particulars you have provided.  The software to do so is available here.
