Default [Q] Disalble the feature or correct the bug of stock samgung video player

I don't know what you are thinking of the "so called feature" that makes the lock button act with a different action than expected when playing a video with samsung video player.
If you play a video samsung implement a very annoying bug, the impossibility to lock the screen with the screen off (i don't care if the video stop playing)

When you type lock button, samsung video app will lock the video control but not switch off the screen.
How can I avoid that $$^$$^^$$ behavior, because the physical lock button should always lock the phone and screen off but it seems not possible with stock samsung app.

Does anybody knows a way to disable that ? root modification of the apk modified version of the app, xposed framework, anything that allow me to screen off my phone anytime I hit the lock button. included in samsung player ?

Step 1: unistall stock samung player (e g. With titanium backup)

Step 2) install free MXPlayer and be happy about a far better player (ads removal with AdAway)
