How to Stop Automatic-Play of Videos in Facebook (in Mobile Phone and Computer)?

By default, Facebook set their videos on your Facebook account (news feed) to play automatically as you scroll down for more stories. It might be annoying to some of you. And I personally admit that I'm also annoyed to that default setting. Why? Whenever I use my mobile phone and I connect to the internet thru a Data plan from my mobile network provider, it consumes a big amount of data as I scroll down in my Facebook news feed.
