Disable video auto playback mobile browser

I am using Brave on Android. When I navigate to certain sites, they begin to automatically play video. I go to site settings, and there is no option to disable this behavior in Brave. There was a bug report, but it appears to have only been fixed on desktop?

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Navigate to a site with auto playing videos. e. g. www.arstechnica.com, space.com/news
  2. Scroll until an auto playing video starts

Expected result:
It should not play, or there should be an option to make it not play
