SMV (SigmaTel Motion Video) is a low resolution video format used in some MP3/MP4 player devices. These devices have low power CPU and a tiny LCD screen. To make full use of this tiny screen to play videos, the video must be in low resolution and use low complexity compression method.

SMV format is based on RIFF format, same as WAV audio file. The resolution of SMV file can be 128x96, 128x128, 160x96, and 160x128. The codec of video is mjpeg, and the codec of audio is IMA ADPCM. The size of a one-minute SMV file is about 6 MB.

The maker of these devices usually provides some kind of software tool to convert commonly used video format such as AVI, WMV, MP4, and MOV to SMV format, so that you can convert other format video to SMV format and enjoy them in the tiny screen of these devices.

But there are few converters that supports convert SMV files to more common formats like MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, FLV, MP3, WAV, M4A, etc. What is worse is SMV format is not a commonly used format, so most popular player software(Windows Media Player, Quick Time, iTunes, etc) and devices(iPod, iPhone, Zune, etc) do not support this format.
