If Windows Vista/7 does not show that, try MediaInfo Lite

right-click on file, properties, then the details tab. Should show the resolution in height and width.

Download, unzip and run DPMediaInfo. load your video file and you should see something like this:

alt text

The field Size is showing the resolution (160x120 in this case)

DPMediaInfo is portable, free and open source software.
