I would like to cite a youtube video that is inside of another website. The video seems to be taken from youtube, but another website included it. Do I cite the video or the website?

If you're referring to the content of the video itself, you should cite the video. Guidance for citing YouTube videos is available for APA and MLA formats.

If you also refer to the commentary on the video from the webpage, you can cite that in addition, similar to how one might cite a book review.
