Disabled youtube autoplay, still "autoplays" with new tabs

Title says it all… is there some hidden settings somewhere to block both autoplay from direct youtube access and from new tabs? what am I missing?

I must add this too:
brave blocks 2 autoplays in facebook: videos and ads! When an ad starts, I can’t watch the video AT ALL. The ad get stuck at a blackscreen saying the ad has 15 seconds remaining.

edit: facebook doesnt need autoplay blocking because videos are set not to autoplay by facebook settings.

Am I the only one here with this youtube autoplay problem? I searched for answers before posting but I only get 2019-2020 results telling users to update to the last version… I’m using the latest version there is to offer today…

found out pretty much everybody here is waiting for an autoplay fix…
