That will transcode the stream to your requested format, rather than
capture the stream.  But it's probably more what people want to do.

One advantage with capturing the raw stream is that you *may* get it
with some descriptive meta information in the stream (titles that give
you a who, where, what, etc.).  Though some streams are just as
anonymous as wav files.
