HLS variant playlist debugging

Is there a way to find out what playlist variant the video player is actually playing. 

We are doing some bitrate testing, and I want to know which playlist is actually streaming.

The stream testing tool doesn't give me any information about which playlist variant is being played.

Can you try using RALE tool? That may give some information.

During playback, look at the streamingSegment and downloadedSegment fields of the Video node, they have bitrate information
