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:

1.4.1
-----
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.
16. Scrobbling.
17. Show song lyrics, information, and tags, in context view.

Hi again

1)concerning the volume pop up bug, there are no other clients running. it happens only when you add files/albums to the playlist not when swtiching tracks/albums from the playlist. if i open another client and add tracks the volume popups doesnt come up.

2)what i mean by adding info in the playlist is not using the spread sheet type playlist but actually the beautiful cantata one. i was just wondering if it could be user customizable like in amarok (using the playlist layout editor: http://paste.xinu.at/EzN/).
that way each user can choose which fields to show in the playlist

3)can you add the "edit tracks" option in the playlist , i often tag songs while they play as you can see if the tags are wrong.


4)there is a new mpd option (in git but maybe in stable) to "add after current" (basicly a queue option). can that be added to the menus and icons?

Also would you consider maybe opening a Irc chat/forum/google group? i think cantata is growing rapidly (i have loads of friends that started using it recently), would be easier to communicate :)

best

1. Again, I still dont see this. Did you try enabling the debug? Kinda hard to fix a problem I dont see, without the extra info.

2. Not at the moment. I'm running out of spare time to do this, and Cantata already fills my needs. The amarok thing I think is just way too complex.

3. Will think about this for the next release.

4. I have *no* idea how to do this :-(

I keep meannig to add the code to googlecode, as I have an account there, so perhaps this will help. Then, I hope at least, some others can add the missing bits...

Just noticed my mistake... The "i have no idea how to do this" was in reference to setting up forums/irc...

As to suggestion 4... You can drag and drop songs into place, so I see no real point to a "add after current"

One thought with the volume issue, do you have 'Fadout on stop' set? If so, try changing this so that it says 'Do not fadeout'. Does that help???

To see the messages sent between Cantata and MPD, edit mpd/mpdconnection.cpp and remove the double slashes (//) from lines 39 and 40. Then recompile.

here a patch for the cantata PKGBUILD from aur.
Simply save this in the same directory as the PKGBUILD and call it "debug.patch"
Then run makepkg

Hi, I had the same "volume" issue as zeltakc describes.
The problem was that in mpd.conf the volume setting was "hardware". I' ve set it to "software" and everything is fine now.
Hope I've helped. Cheers.

Just tried with hardware mixer - but still no error messages.

Can you enable the debug? If so, do you see cantata sending extra "setvol XX" (where XX = volume level) messages??

Wow!!

What an amazing update..thx alot..lots of really cool new stuff!

some bugs to report and a small request :)

first i would really love to use cantata as much as i can with just a keyboard so i would love a 'global keybind' (ala amarok) keyboard shortcut to bring up cantanat and focus on the search library filter. that way i can easly quickly add songs/albums to the playlist with the keyboard, is that possible?

BUGS:

1. the fetch any cover image found("When loading covers, if we fail to find one of the standard names (cover.jpg/png, AlbumArt.jpg/png, folder.jpg/png), then use the first image found") isnt working on my machine. still get loads of empty covers even though i know there is a Folder.png/Folder.jpg in the album folder.

2.the cool new locate in library should override the filter (if present). currently if you forgot the clear the filter in the library view the locate in library dosent respond..could be confusing

P.S, have you given any thougt on the fanart/artist image as a background for the lyrics view? the white is a little bit boring conpared to the rest of the sexy cantata looks :)

Thx alot again, i really appriciate it, cant tell you enough how much i love cantata

Thank you, nice to hear some encouraging word now and again!

The main feature for the 0.7.0 release will be dynamic playlists. Its not 100% finished yet, but seems to work.

Keyboard... To have Cantata start when you press the 'media player' icon on a multimedia keyboard; right click kmenu icon, select 'Edit Applications...', navigate to Multimedia/Cantata, select 'Advanced' tab, click on 'Current shortcut key' button, the press the button on your keybard. This should assign the shortcut to starting cantata. You would then need to press-tab until the search has focus. Maybe for 0.7.0 I'll add a 'search action' (assigned to CRTl-F?) that will focus on the current pages search field...

As to the other points...

1. Oops, I never fully tested that! Is fixed for 0.7.0
2. Good idea, fixed for 0.7.0
3. Not 100% convinced that its worth the effort. The sidebar is meant to be quite slim, if so there is not much width for an image. Also, text above an image would not be as clear.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
