Add support for wider range of caption file imports

RIght now, caption for video only supports the WebVTT format.  Can you add .SRT support so that we do not have to convert all our .SRT files we already have?

The reason for only supporting WebVTT is that this is the only format supported by all the major browsers. For us to support multiple formats we would have to create some sort of converter software and maintain multiple formats and keep them in sync. This is not where we want to place our focus when there are already good converters out there.

That said, there is nothing in the way of someone else creating a converter plugin on top of H5P to add .srt support.
