Uploading media files - can I determine height & width?

I am developing an application where users will be uploading media files to our server (i.e. quicktime, avi, etc.) and I'm planning on using the <embed> tag to render these.

I've noticed this tag requires numbers in width and height (unlike <img> tag) in order to display the quicktime movie.

Is it possible to determine the width and height of the uploaded quicktime movie in order to render these?

Thanks,

Matt

I didn't see quicktime in their support list, but ImageMagick is quite useful for media (image) manipulation. I did see avi support, which means that you could use ImageMagick server side to determine the display size.

Another possible direction is the Java Media Framework. I have yet to look into that at all, so I can't tell you if it will do what you need, but it may...
