Time for me to be helpful :)

Looking at the source, I see....

mms://a805.v9135e.c9135.g.vm.akamaistream.net/7/805/9135/003/peta.download.akamai.com/9135/mym2002_med.wmv

A streaming protocal, which "prevents users from downloading it". HA! Very 
funny.

asfrecord (http://free.top.bg/asfrecord/ ) downloads it just fine :) (It 
should work on any sort of windows media stream)

Or if mplayer will play it, I think you could have it dump to a file instead 
of playing.

mplayer $URL -dumpstream -dumpfile $FILENAME

might work.
