How do I know the resolution of the video file I am playing? I use VLC player to play my files.

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.
Gspot
Establishes what video and audio codecs are required to play any video.
Shows framerate, duration, aspect ratio, bitrates, structure info, and more. Supports AVI, MPG, VOB, DVD, VCD, SVCD, MP4, FLV, MOV, QT, RM, SWF, WMV, ASF.

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.
