Chicago video citation

The Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition [2010] , also known as CMS, was used to create this guide, which illustrates examples in the author-date/references format. Material requiring a citation uses an in-text citation within your paper along with a full bibliographic entry in the reference list which occurs at the end of your paper. For each author-date citation in the text, there must be a corresponding entry in the reference list for any source like image, article, or website.

Section 14.280 of the Manual list the elements of an online video citation: If known, the name of the principle subject of the recording, such as a presenter, interviewee, journalist, or director. The words “interviewed by” and then the name(s) of the interviewer(s) if the recording is of an interview. The title of the video clip, placed in “quotation marks.” If the clip is part of a larger work or a collection of film clips, the title of the work as a whole in italics.  The medium of the recording or name of the website on which the recording is located — YouTube video, MPEG file, New York Timesvideo, etc.  The manual is not clear on when to list the medium of the recording vs. the name of the website. The time length of the recording.  The name of the person or organization who put the recording online if different from the name of the principle subject of the recording or the name of the website on which it is located. The date on which the recording was uploaded.  The Web address at which the recording may be found. Otherwise, if it looks complicated you may practice free citation machine to facilitate bibliography building process.
