I have data limit, how do I stop embedded video from downloading when a page opens?

When viewing a web page with text I want to read and embedded video I don't want to watch, I see the video status bar loading even if I don't press "Play" or if I press "Pause". This is using up my data limit over my satellite internet connection. Pressing "esc" to stop loading the page doesn't seem to stop the video. I changed the application preferences for "Media files" to "always ask" and that seems to help with some. Now some embedded windows don't play at all. Is this the only solution? If so, are there other file types on that long applications list I should also change?
