This is good for the obvious security reasons but it makes it hard for us to validate user with our Java-based player.

Password format can be changed in the following file:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config

<add name=”AspNetSqlMembershipProvider” type=”System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a” connectionStringName=”LocalSqlServer” enablePasswordRetrieval=”true” enablePasswordReset=”true” requiresQuestionAndAnswer=”true” applicationName=”/” requiresUniqueEmail=”false” passwordFormat=”Clear” maxInvalidPasswordAttempts=”5″ minRequiredPasswordLength=”7″ minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters=”1″ passwordAttemptWindow=”10″ passwordStrengthRegularExpression=””/>
