It depends on what citation style you're using. 

In APA, follow this style:

Concordia Library. (2014, October 29). How to find a doi [Video file]. Retrieved from

If the video lists just a screen name instead of an author name, your reference will look like this:

Veritasium. (2014, December 1). This will revolutionize education [Video file]. Retrieved from

If the video has an author listed and a screen name, include the author and then the screen name in brackets:

Author, A. A. [Screen name]. (year, Month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxx



MLA does not address how to cite YouTube videos. The following is an acceptable format (borrowed from the OWL at Purdue website), but don't forget to double space your citations.

Author’s Name or Poster’s Username. “Title of Image or Video.” Media Type
Text. Name of Website. Name of Website’s Publisher, date of posting. Medium. date retrieved.

Here is an example of what that looks like:

Shimabukuro, Jake. "Ukulele Weeps by Jake Shimabukuro." Online video clip. YouTube. YouTube, 22 Apr. 2006. Web. 9 Sept. 2010.
