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:

1.5.2
-----
1. Fix Ubuntu Touch builds.
2. When refreshing search menu, clear items first!
3. Fix setting of cover when existing cover is embedded in music file.
4. Fix OSX executable name for case-sensitive filesystems.
5. Hide ratings widgets, etc, in tag editor for devices and Mopidy, etc.
6. Use Control+Alt+Number as shortcut to toggle an output.
7. Don't allow to set short-cuts for actions that are menus.
8. Add high-dpi support to Linux and Windows Qt5.4 builds.
9. When calculating ReplayGain, if peak value is less than 0.00001 then assume the calculation is invalid.
10. When parsing podcast RSS, if episode is marked as video (e.g. video/mp4) but the url ends in an audio extension then it is proably an audio podcast.
11. Correctly initialise seach category.
12. Fix potential crashes on refresh.
13. Fix duplicate notification when Cantata is started whilst playing, or when 'Replace Play Queue' is used.
14. Only show output change notification if outputs menu was not previously empty.
15. Construct a new config object, rather than changing group, to avoid any race conditions.
16. If fading volume on stop, then reset volume just before stopping. Some outputs (e.g. pulse audio) only allow setting a volume whilst playing.
17. If 'url' entry is empty in 'enclosure' section of podcast RSS file, then use 'guid' text as url - if possible.
18. Fix copying of covers to UMS, etc, devices if song is transcoded.
19. Add an option for 64 bit non KDE linux builds to install helper apps to lib64 instead of just lib. Pass -DCANTATA_HELPERS_LIB_DIR=lib64 to cmake.
20. In tag editor, only mark rating as changed if it has been.
21. For Linux non-KDE builds, use login1 interface to detect system resuming.
22. Enable scrobble 'love' button even if scrobbling is disabled.
23. Don't crash when detecting an audio CD with no tracks.
24. When playing a digitally imported (or JazzRadiom, etc) stream from the favourites section, then modify the URL if the user has a premium account (to match what existing behaviour is stream is played from the station list)
25. Workaround build issues with SpeexDSP 1.2rc2
26. Use correct stream icon in playqueue for streams with no song details.
27. Fix FreeBSD build.
28. Respect carriage returns when displaying comments in context view.
29. Fix replaygain calculation when ffmpeg is using planar formats.
30. Enable 'save' button when reading ratings from multiple files.
31. Fix cantata-remote script (used for Unity launcher integration) when this uses qdbus.
32. Fix display of rating in tag dialog when only 1 file is being edited.
33. Fix fetching of ratings in table style playqueue.
34. Don't convert -ve track, disc, or years to unsigned - set to 0.
35. Bundle openSSL libs with windows builds.

 Dynamic lists on Raspberry Pi?

 
 by julon on: Apr 16 2014
 
Score 50%

Hi!

I'm using a Raspberry Pi as a music server (mpd from the Raspbian distribution), and I'd like to add your dynamic lists to the mpd server.

Can this be easily done? Or is there some kind of dreadful step such as arm6 cross-compilation involved?

You need to install the cantata-dynamic perl script as a service on your raspberry pi.

There are some example init scripts in the dynamic/init folder of the source tarball. the main Cantata README also has a section about this - "Dynamic Helper Script - Server Mode"

When setup, you need to configure Cantata with the port number that you have configured your cantata-dynamic to use.

Oh ok, I didn't notice it was a Perl script. Thanks for the fast answer!

While I'm at it, I enjoy very much your application, but using the windows port on a touch screen is a bit cumbersome, as I can't scroll touchscreen-like with the finger in the middle of the window but instead I have to aim for the small scroll bars. The buttons (play, add, etc..) are also a bit small for fingers. Is there any plan for a more touch-friendly version?

I don't actually use the windows version - I created it so my wife could use it on her latop if she wanted, but never did!

Cantata is currently being ported to Ubuntu Touch. But this version wont have dynamic playlists, tag editing, etc. I suppose that this /might/ make it easier to port to other touch environments.

In touch mode, how do you add songs to the playqueue? Do you press and hold to get the context menu?

There is som e Qt code that I can use to make the views 'flickable' but it interferes with the selection...

Ok, thanks for the info!

I'm actually using the windows port (how ingrateful of your wife, btw :D ) on an Asus Transformer T100, and I'll switch to Ubuntu on it as soon as it gets stable enough for daily use (the eternal driver problem on new devices)

Can you send me an email? I have a pre-release version I'd like you to try. (I have no touch devices myself, so cant test)

My email address is in the AUTHORS file.

 Sorting

 
 by imruska on: Jun 5 2014
 
Score 50%

I'd like to ask some refinement of sorting the albums, when possible.
For albums with more than one artists, Cantata offers two possibilities.

1. If "Group multiple artist albums under 'Various Artists' is checked, then each such album is put under Various Artists.
2. If "Group multiple artist albums under 'Various Artists' is unchecked, then
2a. When there is an Album Artist, the album is put under the Album Artist
2b. When there is no Album Artist, the tracks are put under the different artists.

What I would like:

3a = 2a.
3b. When there is no Album Artist, I would like to put the Album under 'Various Artists'.

Or put differently, I want possibility 1, the Album with multiple artists put under 'Various Artists' only when no Album Artist is given.

Actually, as of 1.4.0 (the next version), the "Group multiple-artist albums under 'Various Artists'" has been removed.

If you have no album-artist set for an album with multiple-artists, then I suggest you set one.

Then one more thing.

So, since the next version will sort on the basis of Album Artist, would it be possible to show the Artist of the tracks where the album has more than one Artist? I mean the way Cantata works now for albums under Various Artists?
Or at least show the Artist of those tracks where the Artist and the Album Artist is not the same?

Good point. For 1.4.0 If artist!=albumArtist, then tracks will be shown as "title - artist". This is how these are shown for various artists albums.

Well, you mean, showing them as artist - title, as currently, don't you?

No, in 1.4.0 it is "title - artist" Pre 1.4.0 it as "artist - title" but this has been changed.

May I ask you why you've changed this?
It may be that the new arrangement is better for Pop music, but for Classical music artist - title arrangement is better (when the Artist is not the performer but the composer.)

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.
