I don't know if this is the best way to do it, but using DirectX you can use the Video class in the AudioVideoPlayback namespace to get the default size of the video. After creating the Video object, you can get the DefaultSize property, from which the height and width can be obtained.
A simple example:
Video video = new Video(videoPath, false); Size size = video.DefaultSize; Console.WriteLine("Width: " + size.Width); Console.WriteLine("Height: " + size.Height);
