Short answer: yes

Longer Answer: You can record anything on your screen. Assuming you are watching the live stream in a web page, the steps would be as follows:

a. Load the web page containing the video stream you wish to record.
b. At the appropriate time, Start Camtasia, and select File > New Recording.
c. Set recording type to "Custom Region"
d. Drag to select the region of the web page containing the video. (this step allows you to record ONLY the video, and not any ads or other stuff that may also be on the web page/screen.)
e. Click Record...

Hope that helps.

Or I guess this question isn't really asking that. Never mind.
