Use raw resources for various data files

Robert Stone requested to merge rhstone/vlc-android:use-raw-resources into master


This MR moves existing assets into the resources system. This enables the use of raw resources (with assigned identifiers) to locate and open data files, rather than searching for files by name at runtime. There are no changes to the resource files themselves.

Motivation and Context

In theory there should be a small improvement in file load times; however, the difference is negligible.

How Has This Been Tested?

Android Auto and numerous screens (authors, libraries, licenses, locales) were tested to confirm resources load as expected.

Types of changes

  • Enhancement (non-breaking change which cleans up / improves existing functionality)


  • I have read the CONTRIBUTING section of the README document.
