How do I cite a YouTube video in APA style?


According to the APA Style 7th edition the general format is as follows:

Username. (Year, Month Day). Title of video [Video]. YouTube. https://xxxxx

For example (don't forget to indent the second and subsequent lines):

markapsolon. (2011, September 9). The haunting tape 14 (ghost caught on video) [Video]. YouTube.

shapirolibrary. (2017, July 24). IBISWorld - industry reports & information [Video]. YouTube.

NOTE: The screen name should follow the capitalization that appears on YouTube. The URLs should link to the source.
