Stream Speed Test?

Is there an app that can tell me the speed, resolution, etc., of my video stream from Netflix, Prime, YouTube, etc.? I am using a Shield TV. The stream is going from the Shield through a Denon AVR and on to a projector.

I actually wrote a simple app for the Shield TV but it is a bit complicated to use. Android allows one to get the current number of bytes downloaded since the Shield was last booted. You run the app before a show and then after as the app will also report the difference in bytes and calculates an approximate bitrate for the show. You can gather some idea of what you were served resolution wise from that.

That’s a little more complex than I was looking for. Thanks anyway.
