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 - Group by either Genre, Album Artist (or Artist if Album Artist not set), or Album
2. Folders - displays MPDs virtual filesystem. (This view is hidden by default)
3. Playlists - standard, dyamic, and smart
4. Internet - Radio 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.) and Online services (Jamendo, Magnatune, SoundCloud, and Podcasts)
5. Devices - enables copying from/to USB-Mass-Storage (UMS) and MTP devices, and ripping AudioCDs
6. Search - search via MPD

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://raw.githubusercontent.com/CDrummond/cantata/master/README, for further information.

Hi,
do you think you can implement a suspend-supressing feature? I hate when i leave the PC idle with Cantata playing and it suddenly gets to sleep/hibernation. I've proposed it over at MPD forum http://forum.musicpd.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=135 so every frontend would benefit but they seem to ignore me. E.g. Amarok recently received such feature too.

If you can, please checkout the latest trunk version of Cantata. I've added some code to implement this - however, I have not actually tested it! :-)

I checked the latest trunk right now and verified it works! However I had only managed to compile it with nonstandard cmake options (-DENABLE_KDE=OFF) otherwise it would not compile successfully so I can't tell it will work under the standard -DENABLE_KDE=ON but so far so good.

odd. Anyway, I'll fix the KDE compile issue later. The KDE version should work, as I 'borrowed' the code from Amarok. For the Qt-only side, I had to add more code - seing as it does not use KDE's solid.

I'll consider adding this to the 1.2 release.

Hello Craig.

I'm having difficulties building 1.1.1 This is where it goes wrong:
Quote:Scanning dependencies of target translations
/home/steve/Builds/CCR/cantata/src/cantata-1.1.1/po/es.po:3038: duplicate message definition...
/home/steve/Builds/CCR/cantata/src/cantata-1.1.1/po/es.po:3003: ...this is the location of the first definition
/usr/bin/msgfmt: found 1 fatal error
make[2]: *** [translations] Error 1
make[1]: *** [po/CMakeFiles/translations.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
Thanks a lot for Cantata!
Cheers,
Steve

Looks like I broke the translations in 1.1.1 - will fix for 1.1.2. For now, either jsut disable building of translations (-DCANTATA_TRANSLATIONS=none ?) or use those from 1.1.0

I want test cantata, I compile and install, but when I launch it, in connections details window, I don't know how...

I open port 6600, but what I do with Host(or local socket) and password field ?

password is my user password or root password ?

And Host ?

When I click on connect button I have this error message :
Connection to "Default" (localhost:6600) failed.

Do you want to run MPD in system-wide mode? ie. have your music collection shared between all users? IF so, do you have MPD configured, and running on your machine? The password entry refers to the password you have configured in MPD's settings.

Alternatively, you can have Cantata start, and control, a per-user instance of MPD. This will only be accessible to Cantata, and to the current user. For this to function, you must also ensure that MPD is installed.

Hi.

I want to know if there is some tutorial or manual about Cantata.

I have a problem with streams, I can not add them, Cantata shows:

Music folder not writeable.

And the config of mpd and the folders and files are in my home directory including music folder.

I don't know where search information.

Thanks.

Which version are you using? There was a bug in versions prior to 1.0.3 where it would think the file was not writable.

Anyway, I'd suggest waiting for 1.1 - which I'll release probably next week. This has a *much* better interface for streams.

Thanks.

I think is the last version.

I resolved the problem. It was an option deactivated, the name is some like Store stream in folder music.

Hi,

will it be possible to migrate the HTTP stream playback to QtMultimedia for the QT5 build as phonon is notavailable in QT5?

Thank you!

Report

C

CraigD

Possible yes. Anytime soon? No. Not unless someone provides a patch.

Its not a feature I use, and it does not work very well with Phonon - hence disabled from builds by default.

Feature is now in trunk (which will become 1.1)

Hi,

KDE (and you make me remind that the previous build I made was a Qt one)

Ah, looks like KDE builds have the debug symbols. You can remove these by runnig 'strip' on the executable. e.g.

strip cantata

Thank for the hint. I will try to clean up the binary at home tonight.

And thank you for this new cantata release !

Actually, if you tell cmake to create a Release build, then the executable is automatically stripped. e.g. when you call 'cmake' also pass:

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

...I'll add this to the install instructions.
