Copy this text and save as a .bat file in a folder containing ffmpeg.exe:

SET url=http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_radio_three.m3u8
ffmpeg -y -v 16 -stats -i %url% -t 00:01:00 output.ts

This will capture BBC Radio 3 for one minute in a ts file at 384kbps - but wait a minute, the BBC webstream is 320kbps so what is going on?
