Is there a good way to capture short clips from online streaming videos on a Mac?

I would like to capture, save, and replay short clips (from a few seconds to a few minutes) from an online streaming video source. In case it matters, I am in the US and I want to do this for the purpose of commentary and criticism.
I am running Mac OS 10.6, but could possibly upgrade.
A few months ago, I tried googling video capture software and I downloaded one of the higher-ranked results, but the quality of captured video was a lot worse than the original stream. I've also searched Ask Metafilter, but previous questions I've found are either a) specifically about capturing the audio only from a video stream, b) focused on Windows software, and/or c) so old as to be outdated, probably.
