How do I reference and cite an online streaming video, e.g. on YouTube or a TED talk?

Answer

 

For YouTube videos use the name of the YouTube account as the author.

For videos on websites (that are NOT clips of a television episode or a film like a movie or documentary), use these templates:

 

 Create a reference                                                                                                                                              

    Template                                                           

Author(s) last name, Initial. (Year, Month Day). Video title [Video]. Site name. https://www.link.com/...

 

      Example 

A TED talk:

Narula, H. (2019, April). The transformative power of video games [Video]. TED Conferences. https://www.ted.com/talks/herman_narula_the_transformative_power_of_video_games

 

A TED talk found on YouTube:

TED. (2019, September 19). Pico Iyer: What ping-pong taught me about life [Video]. https://www.youtube.com/watchv=pY5UdMh6WJg

 

A YouTube video:

Weissman, J. (2019, November 7). Making the Popeyes chicken sandwich at home, but better [Video]. YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5SYu8tyKjM

 Create a citation                                                                          

     Template 

(Author(s) last name, year)

(Author(s) last name, Year, hh:mm:ss 

 

      Example 

(Narula, 2019)

(Narual, 2019, 3:54:23) 

 

See the APA 7 website for more information.
