RewriteRule ^page/videos/([^/]+)? /videos.php?name=$1


But not work in
/page/videos/drama-name?page=2

Answer

You can combine regex and shorten your rules in your .htaccess with QSA flag:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

# add www in host name
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*?)/?$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,NE,L]

# Unless directory, remove trailing slash
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.+)/$ /$1 [NE,R=301,L]

RewriteRule ^page/(submit|contact|search|recent|playlist)/?$ $1.php [L,NC]

RewriteRule ^page/(videos|watch)/([^/]+)/?$ $1.php?title=$2 [L,QSA,NC]
