Local Playlists are not available with Lumo Play Personal or Free licenses; they require Lumo Playground, Lumo Playmaker, or Lumo Play Pro to use.
Local playlists are build & scheduled from the Lumo Play Software. To add or remove games to local playlists, you must have direct access to the software.
Local Playlists (Lumo Play Pro feature only) are useful if you want to control the playlist from the computer running the installation. It will work online and offline but if you are offline you will only be able to play the games that you previously downloaded.
