I created a paragraph about Project Soli which was introduced at this year's Google I/O conference. However there are only two videos available. This is one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpbWQbkl8_g

How would you cite this speech and put it in the bibliography?

  • Biblatex has an online entry type. – Bernard Aug 3 '15 at 20:54

With package biblatex, you can cite online entries (@online) without anything to care about. All entry fields support an url field as well.

Remember, you can even refer to a very specific moment by appending the time to the youtube link.

        title = {Some cool motion sensor stuff},
        date = {2015},
        organization = {Youtube},
        author = {Peter Zatko and  Ivan Poupyrev and  Rachid El
        Guerrab and  Regina Dugan},
        url = {https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpbWQbkl8_g#t=20m15s},

  • How would you reference a movie? – nilon Jun 19 '18 at 22:15
  • @nilon depends. If it is only one, i would misuse book or online; if you have several, i would define a new driver. – Johannes_B Jun 20 '18 at 4:00
  • Yes @Johannes_B. But what would you put after the @ such as "book", could you use something like "movie" or "film"? – nilon Jun 21 '18 at 1:07
  • @nilon yes. But you need to define a driver for it. – Johannes_B Jun 21 '18 at 4:25
  • that seems like a good idea. How do you do that? – nilon Jun 21 '18 at 12:03
  author =   {Peiter Zatko and Ivan Poupyrev and
                  El Guerrab, Rachid and Regina Dugan},
  title =    {{G}oogle {I/O} 2015. {A} little badass. 
                  {B}eautiful. {T}ech and human. {W}ork and love. {ATAP}},
  howpublished = {\url{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpbWQbkl8_g}},
  month =    {May},
  day =          29,
  year =     2015
  • Can you maybe add, that this approach is only useful for the older BibTeX/bst system? Or in other words, can you add that this is not good with biblatex? – Johannes_B Aug 3 '15 at 21:11
  • @Johannes_B Why is that? What would be good with biblatex? – Hedge Aug 3 '15 at 21:29
  • I think there are better ways with biblatex, but I wouldn't say this is bad. – lindhe Jan 6 '16 at 16:06
