Auto-starting a video on page load in BB browser

I'm a user of Blackberry Passport ( OS BB10) and have the following problem. On default browser JW Player auto-starts a video on website which is quite annoying since it eats up tons of cellular data transfer. I installed additional browser: Evolution Browser and when I changed the browser identity from BlackBerry 10 to Android it was ok (meaning you have to tap on the video to start streaming).

This is an example of website, where I've noticed this problem:,dzien-z-zycia-pierwszej-damy-czyli-za-co-agata-duda-dostanie-13-tys-zl
I'd appreciate any help how to turn off auto load on default BB browser.

That sounds like something that is built into the Blackberry OS, so we can’t do anything to stop it on our side. Out of curiosity, what happens with a generic HTML5 <video> tag set to autostart?
