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:

1.5.0.1
-------
1. Add missing libtag.dll to windows setup.

1.5.0
-----
1. Remove cover size setting, set automatically.
2. Artist images only shown in grid view.
3. No images, or icons, shown in basic tree view.
4. Remove GUI option to control saving of scaled covers. This is enabled by default, and can be toggled via the config file.
5. Don't re-load view when sort changes.
6. Simplify view config pages.
7. Use QUrl with server details to build HTTP address used to compare MPD http file paths against.
8. Store song ratings in MPD's sticker DB. Ratings stored using 'rating' key and values 0 to 10. In the UI, ratings are show as 5 stars.
9. If we fail to download a cover, don't keep trying next time song is played.
10. Simplify toolbar cover widget, no border.
11. Allow preference dialog to shrink smaller. If screen size is less than 800px, then views page is re-arranged to allow much smaller dialog, category selector uses smaller icons, and headers are removed.. You can check this setting by calling cantata as follows: CANTATA_NETBOOK=1 cantata
12. Support MPDs "find modified-since" with MPD 0.19 and newer. If a number is entered it is taken to be 'modified since X days in past', otherwise a date should be entered (e.g. 01/12/2001 to find all tracks since 1st Dec 2001) Cantata will first try to convert from your locale date format, default date format, and then ISO date format.
13. Show covers in search results.
14. Show performer in cover tooltip if this is set and different to album artist.
15. Always large action icons for grid view.
16. Increase gap between add and play icons in grid view.
17. Disable volume fade on stop by default - this is really something MPD itself should implement.
18. Remove 'Add albums in random order' from view context menus.
19. Reorganize playqueue context menu.
20. Use 'Metadata' and not 'Tags' as metadata/tags view in context song pane.
21. Minor changes to song progress slider.
22. Show covers in playlist tree and list views.
23. Use read-only editable combo for filename in tag editor, so that text can be selected.
24. Also read /com/canonical/desktop/interface/scrollbar-mode to determine if overlay scrollbars have been disabled.
25. Add note about 'AlbumArtist' tag to initial settings wizard.
26. Use QDesktopWidget::logicalDpiX()/96.0 to set DPI scale factor.
27. Expand ~/ to QDir::homePath() when read from UI.
28. Save QDir::homePath()/ as ~ in config file, and convert when read.
29. Allow all bar title and artist columns to be hidden in playqueue.
30. Add option to disable song info tooltips.
31. Only show icons in message widget buttons if style uses icons for dialog buttons.
32. Add option to have separate play queue search action - enabled by default.
33. Revert back to storing scaled covers as JPG. PNG is taking too much space, especially with retina displays.
34. Read ArtistSort, AlbumArtistSort, and AlbumSort from MPD. If found, use these to sort items.
35. Add 'Full Refresh' action - cuases caches to be removed, and models to be completely refreshed.
36. Add actions to mark podcast as episode as listened or new.
37. Add action to cancel podcast downloads.
38. Download podcasts sequentially.
39. Configurable limit to auto podcast downloading.
40. When starting, remove any previous partial podcast downloads.
41. Don't make media keys backend configurable, auto detect the best one.
42. Remove Gtk combo popup size hack.
43. Fix Qt5 translations.
44. Add button to status bar to eanble/disable playback of MPD HTTP output stream.
45. Show notification when outputs changed.
46. Connect MPRIS stopAfterCurrent signal to correct action.
47. Add prev/play/pause/etc actions to Unity launcher, and to windows taskbar entry.
48. Fix current track highlight in grouped view under windows for header item.
49. Use same selection drawing for all views.
50. Fix size of collapsed window in windows builds.
51. If run under Unity or OSX, then place close buttons on left.
52. Fix auto-marking of played downloaded podcasts when connected via a local socket.
53. Fix playback of local files by inbuilt HTTP server.
54. In catata-tags.exe set unhandled exception handler, to prevent windows crash dialog appearing.
55. If a command fails to be sent to MPD, and the socket is in an error state, then reconnect and update status and playqueue.
56. For windows builds, when window is not focused, draw sidebar selection as a darkened background.
57. If MPD supports https, then there is no need to convert SoundCould URLs.
58. If playlist is loaded and replaces playqueue, then start playback of first track.
59. Custom/thin scrollbars for context view.
60. If fail to read a Gtk setting from DConf then try GSettings.
61. Send a message (default to 'status') at least once every 30 seconds to keep command connection alive.
62. Fix inconsistent default cover sizes.
63. French translation - thanks to Jaussoin Timothée.
64. Seek 5seconds when control (or command for Mac) and lef/right arrow keys are pressed. (Seek setting may be changed via config file - refer to README for more details.)

 Dynamic lists on Raspberry Pi?

 
 by julon on: Apr 16 2014

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.

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.
