Plugin auto injects og:image and makes it duplicate (1 post)

    I've recently updated to last version of the plugin (4.1.6) and since then I see that when I have a youtube in my post's content, the plugin auto inserts to the head section the meta property for facebook - og:image

    This is a bad behaviour, since in most cases posts will have another og:image already in page, with the appropriate image for facebook.
    So this plugin makes that meta duplicates and facebook sometimes chooses to prefer the og:image of the plugin and sometime og:image that is there with the real featured image.

    The code locate in smartyoutube.php, lines 136-148

    if ( isset( $matches[0][5] ) )
    				if ( $matches[0][5] != '' )
    					echo '<meta property="og:image" content="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/' . $matches[0][5] . '/default.jpg" />';

    It will be best if plugin's developer will add an option to set this on/off, or to filter this out.
    Right now the only way to change this is change in plugin's source code, which will be erases upon next update.
