Change the way we handle the locale change

Nicolas Pomepuy requested to merge Aza/vlc-android:fix_language_change into master


We now use a ContextWrapper approach. This way we make sure that in any part of the app the Context is wrapped to overwrite the locale.

Motivation and Context

The language change failed for different reasons, all related to the context used to retrieve strings.
