I've got the VLC player as well as aTubeCatcher. Both seem to have the ability to capture and store streaming video, but I can't figure out how to use them.
If memory serves, VLC even allows you to select a format to store the video in, as in ".mp4". Pretty sure aTubeCatcher allows you to do the same.
Can someone bring me up to speed on at least one of these, if not both?
(Yeah, I know a more cautious title for the thread might have been more appropriate, but I don't know enough to come up with alternate wording.)

VLC player to begin with. That's part of the problem.
Also, if you do go into the "streaming" controls, VLC seems to have a set of controls in there that's for converting and storing the video. Once again, tho', I can' t figure out how to get it to play. I have the URL for the video, and input it, but when I hit "stream", nothing happens.
It seems "telling me like I'm five years old, one step at a time" is what's needed in this situation.
vlc. In any case, vlc must be compatible with whatever url it is, which is not the case for every url.

Okay, let's try this again.
Can someone tell me, step by step, what I need to do (leaving out NO details) to use the streaming feature (as in capturing streaming video so it's stored on my hard drive, possibly including storing it as an .mp4)) when using the VLC player?
