I'm rather perplexed as to why I have to change the default user agent to something other than the default edge user agent for this one site: MSNBC Live: Stream the latest TV shows As soon as I change it to say google chrome browser the live feed stream functions properly, my issue is the fact that I don't know how to save the desired user agent in the developer options area. I'm enclosing a screenshot of what I'm referring to, I feel like there must be a way to save my changed setting.

You can try creating a 'custom shortcut' to edge with the following Target line to start Edge with the particular User Agent string you want.

eg: Using the default profile & User Agent "Chrome - Windows"
Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --profile-directory="default" --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/%s Safari/537.36"

nb: Currently, in Edge Developer Tools, within the NetworkConditions dropdown, the UA string for "Chrome - Windows" is shown as "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/%s Safari/537.36".
Also, note that the string will apply to all pages you open in Edge using this particular shortcut".

das10,
Thanks so much for your informative reply, my main issue with applying the script that you have included in your reply is where & how to apply it. I'm thinking I could utilize an extension such as tampermonkey to make the process easier for a person like me that isn't that familiar with scripts.

You can use that code to create a new Shortcut on the Desktop for example, & in the "Type the location of the item" enter that "whole code".
