Description:

Cantata is a (yet another!) client for the music player daemon (MPD). Originally started as a fork of QtMPC, the code is now *very* different. Cantata can be compiled with KDE support, or as a pure Qt4 application. The interface is very configurable - most views can be shown as either a list or tree structure.

Currently Cantata has the following views:

1. Library - sorted as Album Artist (or Artist if Album Artist not set), Album, and finally Track.
2. Albums - displays albums as icons, sorted by their title.
3. Folders - displays MPDs virtual filesystem. (This view is hidden by default)
4. Playlists
5. Dynamic - dynamic playlists
6. Streams - allows saving of internet radio URLs, searching for stations via TuneIn or ShoutCast, station listings from; Digitally Imported (+Sky, JazzRadio, RockRadio), TuneIn, IceCast, ShoutCast, SomaFM, etc.
7. Online - Jamendo, Magnatune, SoundCloud, and Podcasts
8. Devices - enables copying from/to USB-Mass-Storage (UMS) and MTP devices, and ripping AudioCDs

The sidebar has a context menu, allowing you to control its style and what items are shown.

Refer to http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Client:Cantata, and https://cantata.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/README, for further information.




Changelog:

1.4.2
-----
1. When guessing song details from filename (due to missing tags), remove any extension - not just three letter extensions!
2. In tag editor, only show '(Various)' hint for the 'All tracks' entry.
3. Also capitalise composer in tag editor.
4. Resize device properties dialog when changing transcoder.
5. Initialise sidebar icon sizes before constructing.
6. Display multiple genres as separate entries in playlists page genre combo.
7. Resize cover in grouped view if it is too wide.
8. In context view, when creating links to similar artists compare artists names case-insensitively.
9. Fix downloading of podcasts when url is redirected.
10. If 'force single click' is disabled, then double-click on icon view will not add artist/album to playqueue but navigate into.
11. When using Cache config page to clear disk cover/scaled-cover cache, also clear memory cache.
12. Allow to change stream, and online-service, filter search category without closing current search field.
13. Fix combo-box text changed signal for Qt5 builds.
14. Don't have double spacer when cover-widget is hidden.
15. Fix crash in context view if song tracks changed quickly.
16. Better method of setting disabled opacity for monochrome icons.
17. Fix parsing of podcast RSS files containing "content" tag.
18. Set user-agent for podcast URL queries, otherwise requests can fail.
19. Use https://googledrive.com/host/XXX and not https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=XXX for stream provider URLs, etc. Seems like the drive.google.com URLs have download limits.
20. Fix crash when changing buttons of dialogs in Qt builds.
21. Fix setting of played state for podcasts.
22. Fix display of unplayed podcast episode counts.
23. Check if downloading podcasts in closeEvent() as well as quit()

25. Ignore empty station names in shoutcast and dirble.
26. Fix potential crash when parsing cue files.
27. Replace any of (/ ? < > \ : * | ") with underscore when creating cover file cache names under windows.

1.4.1
-----
1. Remove unused var warning when compiling without online services.
2. Remove some moc/QObject warnings in KDE builds without streams or http server.
3. Update current song to scrobble, even if disabled, so that when enabled we can scrobble.
4. Seems like MPDSribble itself is broken with regards to sending "love" status, so remove MPDScribble from list of scrobblers.
5. Last.fm replies are XML, so decode these properly!
6. Don't log scrobbler session key to debug file.
7. Remove extra margin in podcast settings dialog.
8. When adjusting track numbers in tag editor, start from first actual track.
9. Only enable 'center on current track' action if there is a current track.
10. Use comma to split multiple genres in tooltip and table views.
11. Don't URL encode scrobble keys, just values.
12. If now playing has been sent, track has not been scrobbled, then when track is played after beeing paused for more than 5 seconds resend now playing.
13. Rescrobble, and re-send now playing, if track is repeated.
14. Exceptions are required for all non Qt5 builds.
15. Fix crash in settings dialog when some system-tray options removed.
16. Use QIcon::fromTheme to set system-tray icon.
17. Fix compilation with older ffmpeg versions.
18. Fix compilation with taglib versions older than 1.8
19. Use KDE cmake macro to enable exceptions in KDE builds.
20. Don't alter text of 'Other Views' tab in preferences dialog if streams, online, and device support are disabled - as there are still 2 views; folders and search.
21. Only remove cached scaled covers if updated via cover dialog.
22. If auto-splitter hide is disabled, then restore sizes.
23. ReplayGain settings only valid for MPD v0.16 onwards.
24. Don't center align context view headers and images - as this does not always work for images.
25. Attempt to align song view selector with header.
26. Remove 'Add albums in random order' from search view context menu.
27. Remove mention of streams from initial settings wizard file settings.
28. Fix updating of playqueue background when option changed in preferences dialog.
29. Fix reading of playqueue, and context, backdrop settings.
30. Fix uneven view heights when touch friendly setting is enabled.

-----
Main new features in this release:
1. Use external helper app to read/write tags. Isolates Cantata from TagLib crashes.
2. Lyrics auto-scroll.
3. Option to auto-switch to context view.
4. Toolbar reorganisation.
5. Comment tag support for tag-editor and dynamic playlists.
6. Attempt to respect menubar usage of current DE.
7. Reduce memory used by covers.
8. Artists and albums with new tracks shown in bold.
9. 'Touch Friendly' option - increases button widths, and makes views flickable.
10. Multiple genre support.
11. Streams now stored in '[Radio Streams]' MPD playlist. Compatible with MPDroid development version.
12. Use MusicBrainz AlbumId (if set) to differentiate albums. This helps if you have multiple releases of the same album.
13. Search for streams via dirble.
14. Reduce supplied stream providers to IceCast, ShoutCast, Drible, and TuneIn. Provide dialog to download others from Google drive.

 Nice work

This app seems pretty promising!

I've been a ncmpcpp user for quite a while, and I really don't remember seeing a nice KDE MPD client so far.

I'll surely give it a try and let you know about my conclusions. Thank you very much.

 Fantastic!

This is what I was looking for. Great job :)
It's not perfect yet, but as for a first release it shows a great potential.

Apart from praise, i would like to give a couple of request and point out some bugs:
Feature: play/pause on middle clicking the tray icon. For kde version I've already changed the code:
mainwindow.cpp, line 1507, add something like
connect(trayItem, SIGNAL(secondaryActivateRequested( const QPoint & )), this, SLOT(playPauseTrack()));
Bug1: Having the tray icon enabled if you enter and leave the settings, each time a new tray icon appears
Bug2: folder view in tree mode does not respond to double clicks.

If I find something more, I will post it here, because I have only played with your application for about 5 minutes.

Middle-click feature, thanks I'll add this.

BUG1: I don't actually use the tray icon, hence I've not noticed this! I'll fix

BUG2: Ahh! Just noticed this. I have my KDE set to single click, so didnt see! Again, will fix.

Thanks for testing!

BUG1: Edit gui/mainwindow.cpp at about line 1945 simply add: "if (trayItem) return;"

BUG2: Edit widgets/itemview.cpp, and comment out line 330 ( "connect(treeView, SIGNAL(activated(..." )

This should fix these issues.

BUG1: Strange, I don't have as many lines in mainwindow.cpp, only around 1632. Maybe you meant line 1495 in setupTrayIcon(), because there it works :)

BUG2: Great, it works now:) However, now that I can properly see the tree structure I was wandering why are there no tree expand arrows in the top level directories. But it's not a biggie.

Now that both bugs are fixed I'm going to use your client full time :)

The top level expand arrows are not there as I thought they just added visual noise. No big deal, I an always add them back if people prefer them that way...

I just tried it. I'm stuck with ncmpcpp but it seems so cool. The only thing I disliked is toolbars are not configurable and buttons are too big for my taste... Everything else is OK, at beggining it was slow for searching and stuff like that but I guess it's by it reads the mpd database. Maybe a progress bar would be cool.

Do you mean slow at start-up when the collection is loaded? How slow is slow? How large is your collection? I have about 300 albums, and I dont notice any slow down. (Is it fast enough after the initial start? The MPD database is cached to an XML file, so should be quicker on restarts)

The search is just using Qt's inbuilt model filtering, so does not query mpd - as the whole collection list is in memory.

 Deb package for the brave

I compiled a deb package for those eager to try it out. I made it with checkinstall, so don't expect anything fancy.
Made on Kubuntu 11.10, KDE 4.7.2 (probably)

I hope the application creator is ok with me distributing packages.

Sorry for spamming the comments, but it turns out that the checkinstall package I made was not really ok. Fortunately, the author included cpack directives, so now I'm posting a properly (I hope) made package

I'm really, really sorry, but I don't have a 64bit build environment around. If I had, I would be more than glad to help. However, I suggest that you built it yourself, it turns out to be much easier than expected.

It's me again. I made an almost complete translation of Cantata. The .po file can be found here:

I hope the quality of translation will be satisfying.

Thank you for this no-frill MPD. I've packaged it and sent it upstream for consideration (and hopefully addition) to our distro's repository. Good luck and more power on the development! Best regards.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
