A graphical (Qt5) client for MPD



NOTE Cantata is now in a bug-fix only state. Therefore, new features are unlikly to be implemented unless pull requests are submitted. The current release, 2.4.x, is likely to be the last feature release.


A graphical (Qt5) client for MPD, supporting the following features:

  1. Supports Linux, macOS, Windows, and Haiku. NOTE: Only Linux actively supported as of 2.3.3
  2. Multiple MPD collections.
  3. Highly customisable layout.
  4. Songs (optionally) grouped by album in play queue.
  5. Context view to show artist, album, and song information of current track.
  6. Simple tag editor.
  7. File organizer - use tags to organize files and folders.
  8. Ability to calculate ReplyGain tags. (Linux only, and if relevant libraries installed)
  9. Dynamic playlists.
  10. Smart Playlists.
  11. Online services; Jamendo, Magnatune, SoundCloud, and Podcasts.
  12. Radio stream support - with the ability to search for streams via TuneIn, ShoutCast, or Dirble.
  13. USB-Mass-Storage and MTP device support. (Linux only, and if relevant libraries installed)
  14. Audio CD ripping and playback. (Linux only, and if relevant libraries installed)
  15. Playback of non-MPD songs - via simple in-built HTTP server.
  16. MPRISv2 DBUS interface.
  17. Ratings support.
  18. "Partitions" support.

Cantata started off as a fork of QtMPC, however, the code (and user interface) is now very different to that of QtMPC. For more detailed information, please refer to the main README


I develop Cantata purely for fun, so no donations are required. However, seeing as I have been asked about this a few times, here is a link...

  • Toggling scrobbling only takes an effect on the next playlist item

    Toggling scrobbling only takes an effect on the next playlist item

    Here's a subtle bug: When toggling scrobbling, I expect that it won't scrobble 
    the currently-playing track. But when I stop and restart the track, it's a new 
    "play session" and should be scrobbled - but Cantata doesn't. It only scrobbles 
    when the playlist moves on to the next track.

  • Does Cantata enable playing of hi-rez DSD audio (.dsf & .dff files) or not?

    Does Cantata enable playing of hi-rez DSD audio (.dsf & .dff files) or not?

    Which version of Cantata?
    Which build? KDE, Qt4, Qt5, Windows, Ubuntu, Mac?
    Ubuntu-MATE 14.04 LTS
    What steps will reproduce the problem?
    1. Play any .dsf or .dff (DSD audio) file;
    2. You'll notice that the bit-rate is a low 44100 or 48000;
    3. instead of the higher bit-rates.
    What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
    A bit-rate of either 192000, 352800, or 384000 is expected.
    Please provide any additional information below.
    High-resolution DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio works fine with all the other 
    MPD clients I've used: GMPC, Glurp, mpc, ncmpc, and ncmpcpp.  
    But not with Cantata, as far as I've been able to determine.
    The .dsf file extension I'm referring to is this: (DSD) Storage Facility files 
    (DSF), a digital audio file format and file extension (.dsf).
    The .dff extension is the DSD Interchange File Format (DSDIFF) (.dff).
    These are the two DSD audio-file extensions.
    I don't know what the mime-types for .dsf and .dff are, and they may not even 
    be defined.  Or they may be any of:
    Searching on what the mime-types are has yielded very little.
    From DSD-Guide.com:
    DSD or Direct Stream Digital is a one bit recording format.  DSF and DFF are 
    'kinds' of audio files that are delivered as downloads or read by software for 
    DSF has the ability to hold metadata and DFF doesn't, however, some players 
    only read DFF files.
    In PCM recording, DSF and DFF would be similar to having .wav and .aiff files 
    which are both PCM.
    More complex answers to the above question exists, but for those new to DSD, 
    this is a simple explanation.
    SACD (Super audio CD) is a container by which to put DSD audio onto a physical 
    medium like a CD or a DVD.
    Many DACs play .dsf and .dff files via something known as DoP (DSD over PCM).

  • Retagging multiple albums clobbers release year tag

    Retagging multiple albums clobbers release year tag

    When selecting multiple albums in the collection and editing their tags, 
    Cantata initializes the "Year" field to empty when the individual albums have 
    divergent release years. OK'ing the dialog then removes release year 
    information from all tags.
    It'd be better if Year was seeded with a special "Various" value of some sort 
    that would leave that metadata alone unless the field is actually modified.

  • Search no longer works

    Search no longer works

    As of yesterday, and tested again with up-to-date master head, 9d8389839, search produces no results. I type a single common letter, such as "a", and get empty results.

    Since my library is correctly displayed and since cantata caches the info it gets from mpd, I'm assuming it's not mpd that's the problem (but it was working fine before: Ubuntu 14.04's 0.18.7). At any rate, I couldn't see anything suggesting a newer version was required.

    Interface: missing icons

    I don't know if this bug should be reported here, to KDE or to my distribution bug tracker, so please apology if this is not the right place. screenshot_20161027_122903 As you can see in the screenshot, some icons are missing and there are empty rectangles or the letters fi or fl instead.

    Windows: Unable to update tags; has read/write permissions

    What steps will reproduce the problem?
    1. External HDD connected to a Raspberry Pi (running Raspyfi), enabled 
    network-access with Samba
    2. Set read/write permission to network-folder to "chmod 777"
    3. In Cantata, Right-click on song, 'Edit Tags'
    4. Edit tags, click 'Save'
    5. Dialog appears: "Cantata is unable to update the following tracks"
    6. This happens in the Artist-tree and in Folder view.
    What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
    Expected: tags are updated. Instead: error that tags cannot be updated.
    What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
    Cantata 1.1.3 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
    RaspyFi 1.0 on Raspberry Pi Model B
    Please provide any additional information below.
    Read/write permissions are set to "chmod 777" via SSH to the Raspberry Pi.
    Cantata is able to see the files since the 'Edit tags' button is enabled.
