How to disable the automatic playback of Facebook videos

As I think you have already noticed, both using Facebook from the browser on the PC and from a mobile device, the default settings require that the videos be played automatically. There may not be a problem, but if you have little battery in your device or you have little data I think it can be advantageous for you to remove the automatic playback of Facebook videos. Maybe you asked yourself several times if it was possible, or if it was a Facebook setting that could not be changed. Well, I am pleased to announce that this Facebook video feature is completely customizable.
