Snow -> snow
mpegX -> mpegX (mpeg1/mpeg2)

General rule: take the Codec name or standard definition that fits the
least number of chars and turn it lowercase (eg:
"ISO14496-2;MPEG-4;XviD;XVID;xvid;DX50;DIVX;FM40;h263" -> h263)
In case of collision due features not always implemented the fallback
will be either a specific standard name (eg h263 vs h263+) or a common
fourcc (last chance).

Does it looks too naive?
