Disabling autoplay in official, released MS Edge

Gene Klamerus
Last Modified: 2020-02-10
I just installed the latest (released) version of MS Edge yesterday and it's returned to automatically playing embedded videos (with their audio) when I visit pages.  This is especially annoying as I have disabled this on two previous releases.  It seems that it's reset or overwritten or changed where it stores these preference settings (last time I had to modify the registry).

Can someone tell me where I can disable this auto play again?
