here is answer from MPlayer's developper

===================================================================
Huh? Why did you put that in the summary, it doesn't even appear anywhere in
the output you pasted (and it is irrelevant to the problem anyway).
MPEG-TS container does not specify the the resolution, since -identify relies
on container info it can't give you the width and height.
So I can see no real bug here, you could at most add a feature request to make
-identify also print the resolution the decoder detects.
===================================================================

what do you think about this answer ?
