The general format for citing a You Tube video in APA is:
Author, A. A. [Screen name]. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx
Apsolon, M. [markapsolon]. (2011, September 9). Real ghost girl caught on Video Tape 14 [Video file]. Retrieved from
In text, cite by the author name that appears outside of brackets. For example: (Apsolon, 2011).
