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()

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.

5. Comment tag support for tag-editor and dynamic playlists.
6. Attempt to respect menubar usage of current DE.

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.

 KDE - monochrome sidebar icons

 
 by Grely on: May 10 2013
 
Score 50%

Cantata is superb - thanks for your job, but version 1.0.x with Monochrome icons ("sidebar" and "other action") on KDE looks not good (in my opinion). You can add option UI based only on Oxygen icons (as in version 0.9.2) or prepare secend source package with gui version 0.9.2?

1.1 will come with an entry in the s1debar context menu to switch monochrome icons off - but I'd already had 1.0 translated before adding the mono icons, so could not add to this release.


However, you can edit Cantata's config file (as detailed in the ChangeLog (item 99)), and this will turn off the monochrome icons the next time cantata is started.

Thanks for the advice. It works, but not for "streams" (sidebar) and "other action" (main toolbar).

Streams sidebar icon is not monochrome, but just gray scale. I could not find a coloured stream icon that worked with oxygen, gtk styles (e.g. ambiance), and on windows. If you can find one, then I will gladly use it. (it needs to be in svg format, or at least available in various sizes)

As to the menu button (other actions), this is coloured as per the font colour. I have no intention to change this, as I think it works fine with oxygen. its simple, and matches the chrome menu icon, and various menu icons on android.

Ah, looks like KDE builds have the debug symbols. You can remove these by runnig 'strip' on the executable. e.g.

strip cantata

Actually, if you tell cmake to create a Release build, then the executable is automatically stripped. e.g. when you call 'cmake' also pass:

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

...I'll add this to the install instructions.

Hi,

Thank you!

Possible yes. Anytime soon? No. Not unless someone provides a patch.

Its not a feature I use, and it does not work very well with Phonon - hence disabled from builds by default.

Hi.

I want to know if there is some tutorial or manual about Cantata.

I have a problem with streams, I can not add them, Cantata shows:

Music folder not writeable.

And the config of mpd and the folders and files are in my home directory including music folder.

I don't know where search information.

Thanks.

Which version are you using? There was a bug in versions prior to 1.0.3 where it would think the file was not writable.

Anyway, I'd suggest waiting for 1.1 - which I'll release probably next week. This has a *much* better interface for streams.

I think is the last version.

I resolved the problem. It was an option deactivated, the name is some like Store stream in folder music.

Do you want to run MPD in system-wide mode? ie. have your music collection shared between all users? IF so, do you have MPD configured, and running on your machine? The password entry refers to the password you have configured in MPD's settings.

Alternatively, you can have Cantata start, and control, a per-user instance of MPD. This will only be accessible to Cantata, and to the current user. For this to function, you must also ensure that MPD is installed.

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.
