Would this free online tool work for those?

Happy Friday all,
I have a question that is a bit in the weeds, but I’m sure at least a couple of you might have a good solution or recommendation. We are transitioning from Tegrity to Kaltura for lecture capture. Some of the Tegrity videos had been captioned via 3Play. I would now like to move some of these videos into Kaltura just so we don’t have too many variations for students within Canvas. (and because the Kaltura videos are searchable)
Kaltura is using the Cielo24 captioning on the backend and we are either editing the captions or outsourcing.

I’d like to be able to download the SRT file from Tegrity and upload it into Kaltura. Sounds easy enough, but upon closer inspection, the SRT files do not have the same formatting and therefore does not render the captions in the Kaltura video player. We’d like to keep everything within Kaltura such that we can post videos in the Media Gallery which makes them easily searchable. See SRT example below:
00:02:22.2500000 --> 00:02:24.2550000
Anybody have any questions before we start?

00:02:22,250 --> 00:02:24,255
Anybody have any questions before we start?

Note that the milliseconds are kept to only 3 digits, whereas Tegrity uses 7 digits. The milliseconds should also be preceded by a comma, not a period.

Can anyone suggest a conversion tool? The Tegrity file also contains a cc.xml file but not sure how to convert that to SRT. I tried using Subtitle Edit and it failed.

I appreciate any and all suggestions!
Have a great weekend☺
