Default Amstrad DVD Player cheap recap

Got this for free. Opened metal case and found one bad 2200uF 16V cap.

Replaced it with Capxon KM 3300uF 16V that was removed from a Jou Jye psu.

Instead of being very tall, it fitted without touching the cover.

DVD player works without any issues, the question is for how long, before the Capxon bulges. Do you think the low temperature and low stress of this application will save a cap with so bad reputation?
