Q. How do I reference a Youtube video in APA?


Generic reference format:
Author, A.A. [Screen name]. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx
Screen name. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx

Note: If the user's screen name is not available, list the screen name without brackets, as in the example below.

Reference example:
Funny Avenue.  (2017, August 2). Anchors can't stop laughing at honking dog. [Video file].  Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADLES7XROmo

Corresponding in-text citation: (Funny Avenue, 2017)
