AttributeError: TagReader instance has no attribute 'output_filename'

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The follwing crash occurs, if searching for and installing a missing GStreamer plugin succeeds. Indeed, TagReader is a Decoder, not a Converter (which has attribute output_filename). Proposed fix is to use 'hasattr' for a safety-check and possibly apply a vfs_exists check prior to the unlink, too.

[...] TagReader instance has no attribute 'output_filename'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/soundconverter/python/soundconverter/", line 185, in install_plugin_cb
AttributeError: TagReader instance has no attribute 'output_filename'

Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <soundconverter.gstreamer.TagReader instance at 0x1855128>
result: <enum GST_INSTALL_PLUGINS_SUCCESS of type GstInstallPluginsReturn>
