Stage looks like an interesting addition for adding video's and other stuff. As I am progressing in prototyping I am getting quite enthousiastic over all the possiblities and features of the (combination of) plugins.
But will stage work with publisher generated albums ? If I update an album set whil the stage content that I put in a directory stay unharmed?
Sorry, would be easy to try out, but than I would have to buy it first.
yes, Stage will work with Publisher.
Just like any album, if you change its template in Publisher, the album will take on the settings and styling of the template.
So if you have an album that's using CE4 Gallery and you want it to become a Galleria slide show, create a Stage template set up for Galleria and upload it to the ttg-be/templates/gallery/ folder.
Then in Publisher, simply change the template of your album and the album will go from being a regular CE4 Gallery to a Galleria slide show.
If you're using Stage for videos, then the images in the album don't matter and you'll have to manually upload the video.
But all of this is covered in the Stage documentation
Even better than I thought. I did not realize (nor read) that you could use stage as a template. I read the documentation but I did not see anything about the relalation with publisher. What I meant is that a manually uploaded video in a album set that is managed by publisher will not be affected by republish actions etc.

not exactly sure what that means. Album Sets can't show videos, they can only show the albums within the sets
Albums made with Stage templates can show videos. For example: HTML 5 video in Stage via Publisher: http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … _publisher
Sorry I am not clear.
Suppose I have an album set in publisher. That leads to a directory. In this directory I also place video's. That I manually have to upload as you said.
Then I change things in the album set and republish it. Will the video still be there, indexed etc. ?
Or should I be asking this in the publisher forum?

If you have Stage video albums in an Album Set and you change styling or other things in the Album Set, all Albums within that set will still be there. Just like with regular albums.
