    There are two that I know of. One is called AudioHijack (google for it) and the other one is called iRecordMusic -- website is:

    I use the latter, FWIW, but AudioHijack is somewhat more versatile but less user friendly -- it can hijack other programs besides web broadcasts. If all you want is to record streaming web media, iRecordMusic does it in a very friendly way, and very Mac-centric. Neither one is très expensive.

    those programs don't download the stream, they simply rip the audio from what i understand. i was talking about downloading the actual file. like for instance, if i'm watching a video stream that i wanted to dl, what software could do that?
