I'm not sure if this is a problem with my unzip tool, or not but I'm looking into the APK file structure and I see a file called AndroidManifest.xml. Inside that file there is no XML? It actually looks like a binary dump,

What does this file do, and should it look like this.

I'm using the official VLC nightly, I'm trying to troubleshoot this problem


It seems AndroidManifest.XML is a binary xml file, here is a tool to extract Binary XML. You can confirm that by using file

$ file AndroidManifest.xml 
AndroidManifest.xml: Android binary XML
