Same problem on mobile version:
Brave 1.0.99, Chromium 75.0.3770.101
Android 8.0.0.
Discussion on GitHub last September mentioned a hard-coded autoplay whitelist. Terrible practice, that, but irrelevant since is not on that list. IMO autoplay block should be absolute if the user so chooses.

@Vague_N, @BraveGem,
Thank you for reporting – we actually do have an open issue for this right now. I’ve added this thread with your reports to the Github issue as a +1 on your behalf:
