The following is the usual method for referencing internet videos in MLA style: "Title of video." day, month, and year www.youtube.com/xxxxx. If the creator of the video is not the same as the person who submitted it, write your citation as follows: Last name, first name of the author (i.e., YouTube user). Title of video.
In general, you should reference in-text whatever comes first in the citation on your Works Cited page. If you are referring to a specific section of the video, the MLA format requires you to mention the time in the movie when that section begins. Author citation in-text: (last name, -. date). Video sources: YouTube.
For example, if the video is about an author named John Doe and it can be found at http://youtube.com/watch?v=9mf7qKux5G4, then the in-text citation would be (Doe, 2009). There are two chapters in the book entitled "Video Interviews," so I would refer to the chapter number instead of its exact location in the book with this citation: In-text citation for a video: (last name) .
It is important to note that videos are different from other forms of media such as books or websites. With other forms of media, you will need to provide more information about the source. For example, if I were to reference the above video, I would also need to supply the URL because the video is no longer available there. A resource description page is required for online sources.
In-text author citation: ( Finally, cite the author of the video material if it is not mentioned in the text. )
If the video contains multiple segments with different authors, you may list each one separately but only reference the first one on your Works Cited page. For example, if the video features John, Jane, and Joe, you could write "John speaks for about five minutes then gives way to Jane who talks for another five minutes before giving way to Joe who speaks for another five minutes." However, you would only need to refer to "John" on your Works Cited page because he is the only one cited in the text.
It is important to note that videos can be updated or removed by their creators at any time so information found in them might no longer be accurate. Therefore, make sure you check online sources to verify the information for any videos you use in your papers.
You should also use this format if you are crediting a YouTube interview, using the interviewee's name as the author. Mentioning videos by a separate author and uploader
|Template||Creator last name, First name. “Title of Video.” Website, uploaded by Username, Day Month Year, URL.|
YouTube/Vimeo video citation in the usual style Year Date posted [cited Year Date Cited], Screen name, Author, or AA video title accessible by the internet URL of a certain video length.
For example, the first video I found on how to dance like Britney Spears can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZn-oFmwC4Q It was posted on 2018/01/16 by "AA Video Title", so I would cite it as "Video YYYY/DDD (posted YYYY/MMM) by User Name".
If you want to reference a section within the video, include the approximate time in minutes, for example "At about 1:30 he dances around the room."
You can also include a link to a specific point within the video if you want to reference that particular scene: "At 1:30 he throws his hands in the air and does a cartwheel!"
Finally, you can mention multiple videos together by separating them with commas: "Here is another video of him dancing..."
Don't forget to include the source video ID!
To correctly reference a YouTube video, you must take the following details into account:
When both parts are accessible, the reference format for a YouTube video contains both. Cite the author's name that appears outside of the brackets, whatever one it is. Then give the title number, which appears inside the brackets. That's it!
