Default What does the "remember me" option do when listening online?

Can someone explain to me why there is a "remember me" button to check when logging in to the online steaming player? Everytime I connect I have to put my username and password. Is this option working for anyone?

Also whats the purpose of that verification code? I can understand using a verification code in a forum like this where you want to prevent lame spam bots from auto registering and joining your forum but no spam bots can use the streaming online player if you dont have a password?? makes no sense to me. Can someone explain this to me?

The "remember me" remembers your username and password, but only if you allow cookies and have the proper security setting on your browser. Otherwise, you have manually type it in. The verification code is to make sure an actual human logs in as opposed to software logins. This is to prevent piracy done via automated recording and/or streaming software. Same thing with the "Are you still there" stuff.
