Pbs has this video (Half the Sky, http://video.pbs.org/video/2283557115) on demand for only a week and I would like to capture it. What free (or low cost) software can be used to capture the video? Prefer not to use screen capture because computer is slow.

Try RTMPDumpHelper, this is what I get
rtmpdump.exe -r "rtmp://sdwfchwqitj2v.cloudfront.net:1935/cfx/st" -a "cfx/st?player=portal&mediaID=2283557115" -W "http://dgjigvacl6ipj.cloudfront.net/media/swf/PBSPlayer.swf" -p "http://video.pbs.org/video/2283557115" -y "mp4:cove2.0/independent-lens/2283557115/hd-mezzanine-16x9/HASK-0101-Full-Mezzanine2-web-16x9.mp4?player=portal&mediaID=2283557115" -o HASK-0101-Full-Mezzanine2-web-16x9.flv
I first tried RTMPDumpHelper, but couldn't get it to work. A little miffed because the help files said that even beginners could figure out how to use it. RTMPDumpHelper requires downloading something else before you can use it:
At any rate, I then tried rtmpExplorer and it worked perfectly. Apparently this computer already had the required Netframework4 thingy. I "downloaded" the whole 2 hour show (740mb) in 10 minutes. Not sure how that works, but I won't complain. Thank you for the useful info. I think the show is worth watching, especially part 2.
