    Limiting without cookies

    I have a website that has as a part a video section that I would like to limit to three views and then they would need to login or register. Is there a way to do this without using cookies?

    There is no way of doing this, you would need them to login in the first place to limit views. There are ways but they can easily be got around:

    Cookies - can be cleared
    Sessions - browser can be restarted
    IP Based - router can be restarted (unless they have a static IP)

    The third video you show them could be me in the nude ... then they wouldn't want to see any more!
