When you cite videos in APA format, remember that the speaker is not important in your citations; it does not matter who gave the presentation. Instead, for online videos, use the publisher of the source as well as the year of publication to create citations.

Citation for an Online Video in a Classroom

Note: If you do not know the year the video was published, APA allows for you to use (n.d.) for no date.
