Convert captions/subtitles from VTT to SMI

VTT (WebVTT) is used to process, distribute, and transfer diverse spheres of caption materials in a specific caption format. SMI (SAMI or Synchronized Accessible Media Interchange), on the other hand, is a simple language that structures and formats documents containing both time and text details. At times, you might require transforming VTT files, created by certain exclusive software, into SMI files to make them accessible on multiple platforms.
