Creating Citations for Audio and Video

Citing resources is an important part of your work!

For more examples, visit Purdue's OWL (Online Writing Lab)

Sound Recordings

Performer/band. "Song Title." Album Title. Manufacturer, Year. Medium Type.

Recorded Films or Movies

Title. Dir. Director Director. Performances by First Name Last Name of Actor(s). Distributor, Year. Medium of publication (e.g. DVD,VHS, Laser disc).

YouTube Videos

The MLA does not currently prescribe a citation style for YouTube videos. Based on MLA standards for other media formats, we feel that the following format is the most acceptable for citing YouTube videos:

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

Digital Files (MP3s, etc.)

Follow format for sound recordings above. End the entry with the name of the digital format (e.g. MP3). If the work does not follow traditional parameters for citation, give the author’s name, the name of the work, the date of creation, and the medium of publication. Use Digital file when the medium cannot be determined.
