How can I turn off autoplay

Since the last software update my S8 suddenly automatically starts playing videos that are in the Gallery. When I look through my photos and videos every time I swipe to a video it starts playing at once. Before the update I had to select a video and then manually start it to play. That is what I want my phone to act like. So please tell me how to switch off playing videos that are in the Gallery automatically.

Hi Peter. Open a video from the gallery then open its settings. Let me know if you see auto play settings there.
