    Have a look at the FAQ:

    Q. Why does Facebook play videos instead of linking them to my webpage?

    A. The NGFB Open Graph plugin generates information about the current webpage and its content – what social websites like Facebook do with that information is beyond our control. When Facebook is given information on videos, it embeds and plays them directly, instead of linking the preview image (for example) to the source website. There are two possible solutions:

    – Turn off video discovery completely by setting “Maximum Number of Videos” to “0” on the NGFB settings page.

    – Uncheck the og:video, og:video:width, og:video:height, and og:video:type meta tags. This will leave the video preview images, but exclude information on the videos themselves.

    Thanks,

    js.

    BTW, you appear to have THREE plugins adding Open Graph data. You really shouldn’t do that…

    One:

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://gamepro.co.il/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Tom-Clancys-The-Division.jpg" /

    Two:

    Once something has been posted on Facebook, that’s pretty much the way it will stay. 😉 You can try the Facebook Debugger (see the FAQ) to try and refresh Facebook’s cache, but that only works if stuff hasn’t been posted yet.

    js.

    Ok, thank you
