LG Smart TV: How to watch movies with external subtitle files ?

Hi, hope someone can help me on this.

I have been watching movies (in .MP4 formats via USB) on my LG Smart TV, via the in-built video player program. The problem is that I am not able to configure it to read the subtitle file (.srt) from the USB device.

So my other option is to try download 3rd party video players app like VLC Player via the Play Store application. Somehow after the download, I am not able to see the app and hence not able to launch it.

After some reading, I found out that LG runs on WebOS and not Android OS, and that is why I am not able to see the .APK that I downloaded.

Can anyone help how I can overcome this problem? I just want to watch movies with the subtitles from my external USB drive.

Thanks!
