    I've been trying to convert some videos for use with itunes / iphone and when I do it seems the videos are a bit smaller. The original files are ogm so I have to open them with vlc which won't tell me the actual resolution.

    is there any app for mavericks or preferably, a way to view video specifications natively?
    Every solution I find is either extremely outdated or says to open with quicktime (which only works for a few formats)

    Have you tried the Media Information window in VLC? It shows codec details including resolution and frame rate. Select the video in the playlist window and use Window-->Media Information or hit Command-I to bring up the window.

    Thanks, Brian33, for that quick method, for some reason I didn't see the resolution the first time I looked at that.

    And double thanks to priitv8, for the tip about media inspector. If media inspector can really do what it says it can, then it's more than what I wanted and absolutely perfect for finding out info I wanted, but didn't even know it was possible to get. Gonna try it now
