There's a program called mplayer that will do it. Under windows, I bring the file up in my browser, right click and select properties to get the full url. Then I used mplayer as such:

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile out.wmv -playlist "url"

to dump the stream to a file. The url is time sensitve and must be dumped with a few minutes of getting the url.
