    I have yet to see this done. I even checked at PHP Classes.

    That gets tag information. Dimensions are not stored in ID3 tags.

    getid3() is not only about id3 tags!

    From the HP
    "getID3() is a PHP script that extracts useful information from MP3s & other multimedia file formats"

    e.g.
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    require_once('getid3-2.0.0b4/getid3/getid3.php');

    $getID3 = new getID3;
    $filename "vid/clock.avi";
    $fileinfo $getID3->analyze($filename);

    echo 
    "<pre>";
    print_r($fileinfo);
    echo 
    "</pre>";
    ?>
    will give you back
    PHP Code:
    .............................
    .............................
    [
    video] => Array
            (
                [
    bitrate_mode] => vbr
                
    [dataformat] => avi
                
    [resolution_x] => 321
                
    [resolution_y] => 321
                
    [total_frames] => 12
                
    [frame_rate] => 1
                
    [fourcc] => RLE 
                
    [codec] => Microsoft Run Length Encoder
                
    [pixel_aspect_ratio] => 1
                
    [lossless] => 
                [
    bits_per_sample] => 8
                
    [bitrate] => 43622.6666667
                
    [compression_ratio] => 0.0529190645795
