Question video streaming in .htaccess password protected directories


Hi,
I have a password protected directory using .htaccess and I have a large number of real media streaming videos in this directory for my members.

Every time a member goes to view a video they have to keep re-entering their user name and password every time which is very annoying and is losing subscribers.

A member should only have to enter in user name and password one time to get into the members area...not every time they want to view a video.

What can I do to fix this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't remember a method with .htaccess. You can try with loggin for example via php and use cookies.
