Can't use other media player to play videos in FireTV

Hi, I'm currently using Network Browser on FireTv (2nd gen) I have personal samba network to stream movies, I have successfully configured everything sadly the only problem is I can't use any other app to launch the video files, I have vlc and other media players installed by as soon as I hit play it starts playing using the internal video player, despite setting 'use other player' from the menu. Otherwise please add subtitles facilities in the inbuilt video player which would be great addition instead! And users will be satisfied with inbuilt player itself.

You should be able to use an external video player by going to Settings on the sidebar, there is a video player option.

Beyond that, I believe pressing the Menu button on the remote should toggle through subtitle tracks on the in-built player.
