Help with reading AVI header

Hi I need to read the header of an AVI file and extract the dimensions(width and height) of the AVI file.

I can not seem to find any information on how the AVI header is constructed.

I went to www.wotsit.org to get the file format and it doesn't really tell me how the header of the AVI is made up, or else I just don't understand.

Any help on this matter would be much appreciated!
Thanks

The format is documented at the MSDN site - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dx8_c/directx_cpp/htm/avirifffilereference.asp ("AVI RIFF File Reference")
