YouTube Video

The MLA Handbook does not specify how to cite a YouTube or Vimeo video explicitly, and you will see some discrepancies online-- even among reputable citation sites. The MLA Style Center recommends starting with the title of the video since it is often hard to tell if the user who uploaded the video was responsible for its creation.


Example of a citation with a creator:

Nolke, Julie. "Explaining the Pandemic to My Past Self." YouTube, uploaded by Julie Nolke, 9 Apr. 2020,
