Video pirates, ahoy. All I want to do is save .wmv streams of some Seattle-area public meetings
to my computer, for offline viewing. Simple, right?

Easier said than done! They are in WMV format, I believe, and stream just fine, but the setup seems designed to confound downloading.
I tried VLC 1.1.7, but didn't seem to be getting any audio. Is there a simple fix for that I'm overlooking?
The tools I have available are Firefox, Chrome, IE, Windows Media Player and VLC.
Guidance gratefully appreciated.
