This question applies to the mobile versions of Safari, either as proper content (for example, supporting a news story) or inline video ads. Mobile means iPadOS and iOS on the iPhone and iPad. The macOS version of this question doesn’t provide mobile solutions.

Is there a way to disable auto play of video using a setting, configuration profile or third party app/content blocker?

There's a quite straightforward way to do this now.

Simply go to Settings > Accessibility > Motion and turn off Auto-Play Video Previews.
