I want to know which files in my collection are tru 1080P and sometimes I cant tell whether its 720p or 1080p.
What is the easiest way to tell the actual resolution of a video file other than making guesses based on the video file size and quality!

Gspot codec analyser should solve this for you darthvader747,
I couldn't work without it regardless if it's audio or video,
 anytime I need to know the structure or what the problem is I just drop one on and let Gspot analyse it.

Ok. This is what I need but it does not support .mkv and I really want something that does since a lot of the downloaded HD content are .mkv files!

Any ideas?

darthvader747, apologies for that should have tested the .mkv first.

yes I'm surprised to say I see what you mean, Gspot loads the .mkv but doesnt show much about it ,however if you click on the MS A/V under proposed codecs and solutions it does produce what format the file is
Here's snap just fyi
This is the first file Gspot didnt analyse.
Glad to see you found a solution.
