[MPlayer-users] Small bug with SAMI files with Start-START

The .smi file is a subtitle file that can be use by mplayer where in the tag <SYNC> you have to
provide the argument "Start".

I came across an smi file where the tag was "START", in uppercase, and that was the reason why
mplayer didn't want to load that sub file.

I would hope that this small bug can be fix so that nobody else will waste a few hours trying to
understand why doesn't mplayer want to load this sub file ;-)

You can easily test this, provided you already have a video file with a sub file :
1. mplayer -sub -dumpsami file.sub file.avi
2. Replace every Start by START in the dumpsub.smi
3. mplayer -sub dumpsub.smi file.avi <-- This won't load the sub file
