How do I cite a YouTube video in APA format?
According to the official APA Style Blog, the basic APA format is:
Author, A.A. [Screen name]. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx
- If the user’s real name is not available, include only the screen name, without brackets
- The capitalization [or lack thereof] in the screen name is in keeping with how it appears online.
- In text, cite by the author name that appears outside of brackets, whichever one that may be.
