    ... Yeah, I need a way to look up information on video files, specifically resolution.

    ... It says I need QuickTime Pro. Thanks, but do you have any other ideas?

    Open the file in QT and hit "command-I".

    Awesome! Thanks, I knew it would be some simple QT thing like that, but I couldn't find it buried in the menu bar anywhere.

    Command+I, inside QT, worked perfectly, thanks!

    If you want more information than resolution, there are Mac apps for this:

    MediaInfo: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/media-info/id550128418?mt=12
    Invisor: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/invisor-media-file-inspector/id442947586?mt=12

    Both install an additional Finder context menu so you just point at the media file, right click, then select Service, then the app name. Invisor lets you compare the parameters of multiple files side by side.

    The maximum information can be obtained by the command line utility ExifTool: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

    Unlike still photos, Exif data for video is less standardized. It is often not possible to extract the ISO, aperture or shutter speed from video files. It varies with the camera.
