Can you stop the gallery from auto-playing videos and motion picture?

The gallery's auto-playing of the motion picture is driving me nuts as I flip through pictures after a shoot. I'm trying to hone into the details of the final shot to determine which one's I want to post process and publish but I have to wait for the motion to stop. The only work around I've found is to go out of the picture back to the gallery, and dive back into the next picture, and it doesn't auto-play on the first selection. I've looked in the play store for alternative galleries and gave up after testing a few.

I came from the Note 10+ and motion picture didn't play automatically in the gallery. I've started only turning on motion picture for times where I think I need extra frames, but I've already found myself missing some opportunities when I didn't think to turn it on.

Thanks in advance!

There's no option to disable that unfortunately.. It's a feature built directly into the app..

I was also wondering this. It wasn't like this on previous devices, you had to press the Motion Photo button for it to move, not just move by default. So now when I want to show someone a photo it first plays a short video clip instead, makes no sense.
