What is a .SMV file?

The .SMV file extension stands for VideoLink Mail Video File. It is a video format primarily used to record video conferences and to send videos through email. This format is compatible with a few specific types of portable media players, mainly from Chinese manufacturers. Examples of devices that support .SMV files include the TRIO Onyx Portable Media Player and the Global Sources Direct MP4 Player. Additionally, the Philips GoGear Vibe media player can also play SMV files.

The SMV format is proprietary, meaning it is owned by a specific company and its compatibility with software and devices is limited. Most common video players do not support the SMV format. However, you can open SMV files using specialized software like Smith Micro VideoLink Pro. This program is designed to work with SMV files and can handle the playback and other functions related to this specific video format.
