How to Save Streaming in Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player allows users to save a variety of media, including music, videos, recorded TV shows and movies to either Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center. Many forms of streaming media are available on the Internet for free, some require site registration and some allow limited access to media content without registration.
