Videos FAR down the list still playing automatically

I’m really fucking tired of videos automatically playing, and there is no way to stop it other than muting (not an acceptable solution) or stop reading the one I’m on so i can scroll who the fuck knows how far down to find it and pause it then scroll all the way back up to where I was before being interrupted (a way more unacceptable solution).

There is no reason to load the content for ALL the stories in a folder/feed all at once. You can only read one at a time, so the content should only be loaded a few (3 or less) at a time!

Why can’t you figure this out? This was never an issue with Google, and that was free. I wasted $36 for this shit.
