VLC on Android 1.7.5

1.7.5 is fixing a few issues with sleep activation and a few minor improvements.

1.7.0 release is removing many permissions from the application, and is the first step for Android 6.0 permissions (planned for 1.8.0).

There is a new subtitle engine, for complex text and Unicode support..

We've changed the notification, the lockscreen and the Bluetooth control to be more standard. We've worked to simplify the code and use more standard libraries and widgets.
