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.

...never used 'irc'. All I need to know is;
1. How to retrieve the tag via MPD
2. How to use the tag in searches


As to queue support - Cantata already has this. Or is there something missing?

This is the commit. I am trying to find the documentation for it. mpd wikia is a total mess.

How are you? i recently found out the new mpd 0.17 has support for a bunch of user customizable tags. i was wondering if we could have finally proper support for rating. i know the free desktop common rating filed is 'FMPS_Rating'. more info on FMPS can be found here:

http://gitorious.org/xdg-specs/xdg-specs/blobs/master/specifications/FMPSpecs/specification.txt


using this common rating field will allow to import already available ratings within file and write the new ones into the common field.

This would be great for dynamic/smart/etc playlists

Thx again

Zeltak

And how do you configure MPD to look at the FMPS_Rating tag?

To use this tag in any meaningful way, it needs to be recognised by MPD. To use it in dynamic playlists I need to be able to ask mpd 'find Genre "Metal" FMPS_Rating "1"' So that it will find all Metal songs with a rating of 1. If MPD does not read and store the tag - then it is effectively useless.

Hello, thank you for nice app.

Cantata has several optional deps and features, but all of them are automagic. Please add cmake options for disabling them even if required package is installed and found. It is required for gentoo USE flags.

I've just commited support for this. This will be in 0.8.3. However, if you can please checkout the latest from SVN and confirm the changes.

Also, in future - please report bugs/wishes on the googlecode page. I'll see them sooner :-)

Hello
Since last update (0.8.1), configure shortcuts disappeared.

Still there for me. You did build the KDE version? Only the KDE version supports configuring of keyboard shortcuts - as it uses the KDE infrastructure.

Hello
0.8.2 did not change anything. (http://ompldr.org/vZXZrbA.png) It use the same way of compilation as old versions (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=55187)
I deleted all configuration files (~/.kde4/share/config/cantatarc, ~/.config/cantata/cantata.conf and ~/.cache/cantata. For now, I have no more ideas.

Your screenshot proves that you are using the qt-only build. You need to recompile with KDE libraries in order to get the shortcuts dialog.

Sorry, I was away for a moment.
I figured out that on my Archlinux, cmake could not find automoc4, that's why It was a qt-only build (-- KDE4 not found, because Automoc4 not found.). I fixed it by adding "export Automoc4_DIR=/usr/lib/automoc4" in my .bashrc and here we go !
Thanks for your patience

As I said, ONLY the kde version has this, and it's still there. Sounds like you are using the qt-only build.

Nothing has changed in 0.8.2 for this, as nothing needs to be changed.

It is in the KDE about dialog. But you are correct, it is missing from the Qt one. I'll fix this for 0.8.1

Hello
Could you tell me how to configure Output http stream (address, http://address:port, ect) ?

Report

CraigD

This feature was submitted by another user, and is not one I personally use...

To use, you need to configure your mpd to output to a http stream. You then put the http address of your mpd output into cantata.

I know that because I listen the http stream of mpd through vlc but I'd like to try with Cantata. I don't know how to fill the field output http stream. I tried with and without "http://" and It doesn't work.

I've just tried with URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000 You could also try http://127.0.0.1:8000/mpd.mp3 or http://127.0.0.1:8000/mpd.ogg

(You also need to toggle the stream button that appears next to the cantata volume button).

I had to change the phonon backend to VLC. Then it worked, but was a bit glitchy. (Even in VLC itself the stream was glitchy)

Also, note that there can be a slight delay (1 or 2 seconds) between pressing a control button and the output changing - probably due to MPD, or phonon, buffering.

Thank you very much. It works with vlc backend but not with mplayer backend. Too bad.

With version 0.8, self-built in my arch box cantata isn't running, claiming it can't find libavcodec.so.53.
Arch's current ffmpeg version is ffmpeg-1:0.11.1.
Any ideas?

Hm, it seems the latest ffmpeg and x264 where the problem, downgraded and everything is fine for now.
The ffmpeg-compat package isn't working either, seems that links to x264 libraries are broken.

Hello,
Is it planed to implement a translation process in order to localise Cantata ? With linguist it could be quite easy for translators and even for you.

Thanks !

I'm happy to accept qt-translations - just not sure how they work! All strings are encapsulated with QObject::tr for Qt-builds.

But I'm not sure how the qt-system works.

(Note that for 0.8 I've #defined i18n to QObject::tr so as to reduce the amount of duplicated lines)
