Citing YouTube Videos is even easier in APA 7!
YouTube Account Name. (Year, Month Day). Title of video [Video]. YouTube. https://xxxxxxxxxxx
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. (2017, September 5). Baby hippo Fiona - Episode 1 the beginning - Cincinnati Zoo [Video]. YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nT-q8FM7GI
- Use the name of the account that uploaded the video as the author.
- If the account did not actually create the work, explain this in the text if it is important for readers to know. However, if that would mean citing a source that appears unauthoritative, you might also look for the author’s YouTube channel, official website, or other social media to see whether the same video is available elsewhere.
- Provide the specific date on which the video was uploaded.
- In-text citations are the same as with other sources - (author, date). In this case, it is (The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, 2017).
