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.

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.

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
 
Score 50%

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...

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.
