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()
24. If initial settings wizard is canceled, ensure that it is shown at next start.
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.

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.

 Sorry

All right, sorry for being irritable. I've really been treated badly by another developer (of a GTK mpd client) and mistakenly took you to be the same sort.

 Best player except

 
 by lionhater on: Feb 23 2012
 
Score 50%

I've tried all the music players in Linux and this is the best one, but ability to sort albums (in album-cover view) by album artist/artist instead of album title would make it perfect.

In large collections visiual clue is very useful or rather necessary, more sore with classical albums. By expanding the album-cover pane I can achieve a very nice iTunes-like view, but this should be sorted by album artist/artist. Otherwise this visiul clue is not very helpful. I've got 35 Bach albums (when ripping replaced composer tags with performer), 30 Vivaldi albums, 12 Yes albums etc. And now they're all scattered around -not a logical flow to navigate. Think of a regular library or CD shop.

Sorry for being long-winded, but it's just too good to be wasted by just one flaw, in my humble opinion.

Must admint I don't personally use the album view - its a bit slow. So, I was never quire sure on album-artist or artist-album. I'll add a config item :-)

YOU-ARE-GREAT! An option to sort by album-artist, if not present artist would be great. Or this sorting would be the default and only one available.

Please, consider to put a screenshot of the extended album-cover view as this is most useful for many users, a big selling point!

 just another one

Sorry; another useful feauter would be the ability to have a kind of album mode in playlist view, as one can have playlists containing albums as well as songs and in that case the current playlist view as a song list is not very convenient.

BE::MPC has it (http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/BE%3A%3AMPC?content=137091). DeadBeef, Aqualung, Banshee and Beatbox have it too in various ways.

This is already on my TODO - just haven't gotten round to implement it. Probably won't be in the next version (0.5.0), but I do fully intend to add this (but as an option).

EXCELLENT! Since I've left Mac OS X a few months ago, this is the first time I see the light! At last a music player app better than iTunes. Thank you and best regards.

First of all, i have to thank you for this excelent application. But the copy to device, with or without transcoding, doesn't work. It just create 0 bites files. I don't know if it's a bug o something wrong in my config.

I have tried this and it was working, but its possible I broke something before release. Which device type are you using? UMS or MTP?

I'm using a UMS device(actually my android phone), i haven't tested any MTP, thought.

Hmmm.... this is odd, as I've just tried and managed to copy files to my Android phone (Motorola Defy with froyo), and the files were copied fine.

Can you send me an email (my address is in the AUTHORS file), and I'll create a build with lots of debug. Then I can hopefully track down the issue.

P.S

would be cool though to have an option to save the lyrics as a text file similar to saving the cover.jpg in the same folder

I can add this. Currently, Cantata will attempt to rea lyrics form <filename>.lyrics if found - if not it will attempt to download. Donwloaded lyrics are cached to ~/.cache/cantata/lyrics

It already reads cover.jpg, cover.png, folder.jpg, folder.png, AlbumArt.jpg, and AlbumArt.png.

It only *creates* cover.jpg/png for library albums though.

If one of the above files is found, then Cantata will *not* download a cover. So, I fail to see the issue here...

thx for the quick response

in that case i will transfer the above request to a 'bug' report :) on my machine (arch linux 64 bit latest kde) it dosent read Folder.jpg (with a captile F..that how i have my covers) and it definantly creates a cover.jpg when there is already album cover art avilable (again Folder.jpg). is there a bug tracker to the project so next time i can report to a more adewaute place?

Also as i said im completly blown away by cantata (and trust me ive tried ALOT of mpd clients over the years..). I have no coding knowleadge but would love to help out to the porject in any other areas needed, let me know what i can help with

Thx again alot for cantata it trully rocks

Ah, it does not look for 'Folder.jpg' only 'folder.jpg' I can think about adding a config item for the cover filename for 0.6.0, but for now could you not just rename your Folder.jpg's to folder.jpg? If not, just edit gui/covers.cpp and at about line 59 change QLatin1String("folder") to QLatin1String("Folder") :-)

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.
