As it says, it you record the output of the computer whilst playing the audio sream it can be done. What you can't do is open a web stream directly into audacity as iff it were a file, and get a direct copy of the stream without going through your sound card.
A lot of people try to do this, or try to open the small shortcut files that describe the streams, and then wonder it doesn't work.
