Assuming it is not a known deficiency, and a related bug isn't already 
filed, yes.  If the only reason to use external players is because files 
don't work with the internal, the only way to change that is to let the 
proper people know so they can fix it.  You probably should hold off 
until 0.23 is released and test against that before reporting anything.
