How do I in-text cite a YouTube video?
The APA Style Guide to Electronic References (Sixth Edition) has the following entry regarding YouTube videos:
Streaming video (e.g., YouTube video)
Author, A. A. [User name]. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx
User name. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx
For retrievability purposes, the person who posted the video is credited as the author. If the person’s real name and user name are both available, provide the real name in the format Author, A. A., followed by the user name inside brackets. Otherwise, when the real name is not available, include only the user name, without brackets.
Please also refer to the University Referencing Guide for information on using other referencing styles.
