I currently work with a team of researchers and we are obtaining data from videos that are encoded with SMB8, they are AVI files. We couldn't find anything on the SMB8 codec online unfortunately. We would like to convert these raw AVI videos with SMB8 to H.265 HEVC videos using a converter such as FFMPEG or into another readable codec. Our current issue is that our new software does not read SMB8 files.
I apologise for any inaccuracies or typos, I'm not an expert on video production and I typed this question on mobile.
