I remember reading some discussion of this, and the explanation that
it's not actually 640x480, but some applications are reading it wrong.
Something like this. :)

What is the filesize? You should be able to figure out the resolution
roughly from that. If it's truly 640x480 the file should be less than
1 megabyte I think. If it's full-sized then it should be closer to 10.
