Disable automatic clip/content buffering

The option to disable site clip/content buffering would be handy for when I access the net through my mobile hotspot. With mobile being the only way to access the net where I live, Reddit chews through my limited monthly download limit buffering clips I have no desire to watch.

I have tried disabling scripts which makes the site kind of clunky because the drop down menus don’t work.
And blocking device recognition doesn’t appear to give me the option to set the desktop as a “mobile”, whilst I’m not entirely sure how that’d pan out, having the autoplay OFF on my android stops any clips or content from buffering until I “activate” them individually and that’s the part of the feature I am requesting for the Brave desktop application.
