Unable to change default software

Here's my problem:
I double click a MP4 file and it is opened by an unwanted software. If I specify a desired software, it opens the MP4 file by that software but the default software never changes. The unwanted software is not in the list on OpenWithView.

The default software did change after re-booting the system.
