The srt file has a few shortcomings to be fine with mp4
Now it is:

It should be:
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:20,354

The ‘records’ have to be numbered
the , between start and end should be <space>—><space> # space 2 dashes greater than sign and a space
The dot before milliseconds should be a comma.
A ‘real’ vim-expert should be able to create a search/replace scenario to accomplish this.
