How do I in-text cite a YouTube video?
The APA Style blog has an instruction page on citing webpages, which includes YouTube. See it here: http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2010/11/how-to-cite-something-you-found-on-a-website-in-apa-style.html
For a more specific breakdown, see below for an example YouTube citation from the University of Illinois Library's APA tutorial. If you need help with a different referencing style, please let us know which one.
With YouTube videos, it is important to distinguish between the creator of the content and the person who posted the content. If the creator of the video is credited, put their name in the author position (Creator). Next include the name or screen name of the person who posted the video (Poster), followed by the date posted, the title, and the URL. If no creator is listed, put the poster in the first spot.
Has a creator:
(2007, March 14). What is information literacy [Video] Retrieved from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeopJX5jJV8.
Has only a poster:
Slingshot fun [Video]. (2007, January 29). Retrieved from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCmZYce0J2E.
NB: Your intext citation would be as follows: (Poster, 2009) or (Creator, 2009).
