Plugin configuration 97% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file uses markdown syntax to describe your plugin to the world
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots do not have images: #1 (Each playlist is a custom post type. Create as many playlists as you like.), #2 (Customize each playlist by specifying width, height, autoplay, and autobuffering. Add as many videos as you like (you can use Youtube videos!), each URL in a new line. Update the videos whenever you need to.), #3 (Save your Flowplayer license key to use the commercial player without the Flowplayer logo. Only one license key is needed for all multisites under the same root domain.), #4 (Use a simple shortcode to embed the playlist in any post or page.), #5 (Both Youtube and progressive download videos are supported.)
You can take inspiration from this readme.txt
