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:

1.3.4
-----
1. Fix adding songs to playqueue with priority when playqueue is not empty.
2. When loading covers, if load fails, check to see if this is because of an incorrect extension. e.g. load a .jpg file with PNG type, and vice versa.
3. Fix showing of time-slider when Cantata is started minimized to system tray and MPD is playing.
4. Remove unused 'Back' action.
5. Don't treat albums with artists such as 'AlbumArtist ft Other' as multiple artist albums.
6. Fix updating of playqueue sidebar tooltip and icon.
7. Add playqueue action to main window, so that shortcut works.
8. When using track organizer, also try to move artist images, backdrop images, and playlist files.
9. After altering filename scheme from track organizer, save settings.
10. Don't set year or disc in tag editor for 'All Tracks' unless they are non zero.
11. In tag-editor, when obtaining values to use for 'All Tracks' entry, don't ignore empty fields.
12. When determining album year, ignore playlist files!
13. If MPD database is refreshed whilst listview is not at top level, then reset view to top level.
14. When TrackOrganizer is called after TagEditor, only perform MPD update once.
15. When editing filename scheme, after inserting a variable set cursor position to after newly inserted text and give focus back to line edit.

1.3.3
-----
1. If Cantata is started whilst an instance is also running, raise window of current instance. (Linux only fix)
2. Add song to playqueue from albums page when double-clicked.
3. Fix display of online-service track album-artist in copy dialog.
4. Ensure library is loaded the very first time Cantata is run (ie. after connected to MPD via initial settings wizard).
5. When song is updated in context view, abort any current network jobs.
6. Fix expand all / collapse all actions. Expand all will only expand 1 level for main browsers.
7. When reading lines from user mpd.conf file, read as utf-8.
8. Reset devices and online-services models when artist-view cover size changes.
9. If downloading online-service track listing fails, then stop loader and show error.
10. Use new location of Jamendo DB listing.

1.3.2
-----
1. In cover/artist dialog, when attempting to save an image into Cantata's cache folder - ensure the 'covers' sub-folder is created.
2. When saving artist image from cover dialog, if set to save in MPD folder and song's path does not have 2 folder elements then save in cache folder. Cantata will only save artist images, and backdrops, in MPD folder if the folder structure is (e.g.) Artist/Album/Track.mp3
3. Use case-insensitive sort of folder view items when adding to playqueue.
4. When determining the 'basic' artist of a track, if albumartist is set and artist is not, then use albumartist.
5. For the web-links in the context view, replace ampersand and question mark characters in artist names with the relevant URL encoding.
6. Use CMake to locate X11 libraries and headers.
7. Set minimum size for initial settings wizard.
8. If buddy of a checkbox or radio is clicked, then toggle check or radio.
9. Disable context-view cancel actions until a job is created.
10. When searching models, also search composer field.
11. Fix enabling of "Initially collapse albums" in playlists settings tab.
12. Fix grouped playlist view initial state when set to initially collapse albums.
13. Fix calculating size of song files when copying off a device that has been previously scanned, and its contents cached.
14. When copying from a CD, check that we have enough space for track that was encoded with a 1:18 ratio. Just a sanity check really.
15. Fix song notification mem-leak (Linux only).
16. When transitioning between backdrops in cover view, draw old at correct position.
17. Dont load library twice at start-up when cache has been deleted current tab is artists or albums.

1.3.1
-----
1. Fix collapsed context-view selector buttons text when using a dark background.
2. Apply some Fedora patches.
3. Fix MPD HTTP stream playback.
4. Fix painting of Gtk thin scrollbar style on comboboxes.
5. When waiting for replies from MPD, use Qt's standard timeout value of 30s. While the socket is still connected, Cantata will wait up to 4 times the timeout value. Therefore, the actual timeout has increased to 2minutes!
6. If a sidebar view has focus, but sidebar is collapsed, then find action should activate playqueue search widget.
7. FreeBSD 10 compile fixes.
8. Fix scaling of context view background when size of view changes.
9. Elide text of context view selector buttons, if insufficient space.
10. Only show mopidy note in copy/remove dialog if connected to mopidy.
11. Fix broken en_GB translation.
12. Fix folder-view path parsing. If two folders only differed in the last character then Cantata would have placed the contents of the second into the listing of the first.
13. Explicitly link to pthread.
14. Do not allow 'auto-hide sidebar' and 'playqueue in sidebar' to be active at the same time.

1.3.0.1
-------
1. Fix duplicate translations - causes KDE builds to fail.

1.3.0
-----
Main new features in this release:
1. Basic undo/redo for playqueue.
2. Search tab - searches performed via MPD. This tab is hidden by default.
3. Optionally cache scaled covers, to improve loading of albums view. (Displaying of covers should be faster after 1st run, when the scaled contents are saved)
4. Only start internal HTTP server when required, and stop after last non-MPD track removed from playqueue.
5. If listallinfo fails then use lsinfo recursively to retrieve the music collection. listallinfo requires more memory with MPD 0.18, and has been reported to fail for large collections.
6. Cache folder listing (as per music collection), if folders view is used.
7. Better support for Mopidy (requires Mopidy 0.18, or newer)

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
