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:

1.4.0
-----
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.
15. Qt-only by default.
16. Scrobbling.
17. Show song lyrics, information, and tags, in context view.

Cantata can definitely be reduced to well within those limits.

Right click on the sidebar, and reduce the number of entries (assuming you dont want all items - but even with all items, its only 540px for me). Also, try changing the sidebar style, or remove text labels.

 Where are the built packages?

 
 by maystar on: Oct 13 2012

This is really the best mpd client I've ever used. And it's more stable than the most ones.
That's why I am very surprised that here are no packages provided at all. In my ubuntu system I wasn't able to build Cantata without modifying my system. I didn't want to solve the dependencies just to give yet another player a try (I haven't expected such a good one...).
Fortunately I've found an rpm package here: http://software.opensuse.org/package/cantata
This could be easily transformed to a deb file using alien. I've also seen that you provide Windows version on the google code site. So you could provide packages for 3 mainstream system without any effort on this page. I guess this would increase the number of users as well as supporters.
Thanks for the great tool!

Cantata is developed on Kubuntu/Ubuntu. There is no need to modify your system - apart from installing some development packages.

Sorry, but I do not have the time to create packages for other systems. The windows build exists, as I thought it might be fun to try and port it to windows. However, even here no installer is provided.

If you develop in Ubuntu why don't you offer prebuilt *.deb packages??? I guess you will do many people a favour.
Is there any information about the required dev packages? Normal user don't have them on their system and don't know anything about their dependancies.

Building .deb packages is not such a trivial task as you appear to think it is.

I saw an update of Cantata in my distribution's repositories and It remind me I have a little request.
First of all, thanks a lot for your application, your time spent about It and your abilities.
Is it possible to make severals "Play Queue" like exaile. You know, some playlists (with personals names) in severals tabs. According to you, Is it technically possible with mpd client ? Thanks again for your job.

I think this /might/ be technically feasible - but its not something I would use. It would be mixing playlists and the playqueue - which I think would be a bit confusing. i.e. if the user had an active playqueue, but then switched to a playlist (to play it) - the original playqueue would either have to be stored as a playlist (as what name?), or be 'lost'

Cantata does allow you to list the contents of playlists in its playlists page.

p.s. Sorry about the late reply - kde-apps would not let me log in until now!

 Where are the menus

All I get is a settings menu with 1 item: configure shortcuts and a help menu. There is not even a menu to close Cantata.

Used to use cantata quite a lot so I thought I would go back to it but I need menus.

Which versin of Cantata is this? 0.9.2? KDE, or Qt?

Cantata ha no menu bar, but in the top right there is a menu button. I've just compiled 0.9.2 for KDE, and Qt, and both versions have this menu button - which *does* have a quit option.

hi Craig, sorry for contacting you here in the comments, but a month ago i've sent you a message through the kde-look form regarding Russian translation for QTcurve. Would you kindly contact me back? Thank you.

Hmmm... sorry if I did not reply, I usually do. Please feel free to contact me via email (I *hate* kde-apps/look messagging!). My email address is in the AUTHORS file (of Cantata, QtCurve, etc.)

 [feature-request] stop after current song

 
 by faemir on: Mar 28 2013

Hey, love Cantata, easily the best mpd client i've ever used.

The one feature I really do miss from foobar on windows (and many players) is a toggle to stop after the current song. Obviously it's not implemented in mpd, and all of the 'workarounds' to get it are pretty messy and horrible.

Would Cantata ever have this feature?

If you select the '1' icon in the bottom right - this will enable MPDs single mode. Here only 1 track is played - either repatedly (if repeat is on)m or just the once. So, this will 'sort of' get what you want.

Not really sure how else to accomplish this. Perhaps filing a feature request with mpd? (actually there already is a bug report - http://bugs.musicpd.org/view.php?id=3126)

I'll give this some thought...

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
