How to determine the height and width of an existing FLV file

This seems to basic but I can't seem to figure it out on my own.

I have downloaded a FLV file.  I want to determine the file's default height iand width.

I am using Windows. If I right click in windows explorer I only see the file size, not the height and width.

If I right click on a png file (for exaple) I am able to see  the height and width in the properties summary.

Is there a windows utility that can give me the height and width of an existing flv file.

While I'm at it it would be nice if the same utility would provide other properties such as image quality etc.

Well, I imported the file into flash and got the size info I want.

But just to keep this question goin' -- are there any other ways to find the height and width (and other properties) other than by importing the flv file into flash? :)

Not without using an application to open up the FLV file.  I use the AVS Converter to give me the properties of a video codec.  It's a light program that allows you to quickly look at the properties of many of the most common digital video file formats around.

Here's a screenshot.  You can open pretty much any digital video file in the "Input File Name" box.  And if you click "Advanced" you will see all the details of the file.  So if your input was a .flv file, you'd see the dimensions of that file (along with other properties)--all without opening the .flv in the Flash IDE.
