This post from the APA Style Blog will show you how to cite a source found on YouTube:

Another helpful source is the OWL at Purdue, which contains examples of many types of citations.  Scroll to the section regarding "Nonperiodical Web Document or Report" to find the APA citation style for YouTube videos.
