Video Resolution Streaming Movies Video

When streaming playing video movies on my iMac how can I check my streaming download speeds real time while playing movies or video. For example when streaming Netflix Movies either wireless or hardwired over my network I want to look at the real time streaming download data so I know exactly what I am streaming.

Thanks

Video apps usually can monitor the streaming speed.
Look for it in the app's menus.
It may be named differently - might be connection, or network performance, or something similar.
The Quicktime player, for example, shows network speed in the Inspector window.
VLC, on the other hand, has Media Information, then the Statistics tab.

Or, you can use a tool like like iStat Pro.
Even your Activity Monitor can give you some network information.

This tool provides information on the current streaming bitrate?

I think not…
But, Jane55 must get cash for providing links to Aneesoft apps - or simply works for that site. There's probably a fair number of response clicks, even if the post has little to no relevance to the thread.
Jane55 appears to have moved from advertising for iFunia to Aneesoft.
It's just one of the myriad of asian sites that repackage various kinds of software.
(if you compare random apps on each site, you will see much that is identical - and not really a coincidence, I think.)
Yeah, I don't like it either - but spammers are a part of life on most any forum, eh?
