sorry, but i can't stand such one-liners still hanging on "music player" 
which Cantata by definition isn't which was explained enough

mpd + cantata are a different beast than a "music player" playing local 

my homeserver continues playing the last track at the same position 
after reboot "long" before the graphical login appears and can be 
controlled by smatphone, my own website (using the native mpd protocol) 
or a GUI client like Cantata on whatever machine

and when it comes to mpd clients i have seen none within the past 15 
years which comes anywhere near to Cantata

especially on a KDE system - most other clients are coming with a ton of 
GTK/GNOME deps for half of the usability
