YouTube, TED, Vimeo (Sec. 7.11 APA Publication Manual)

  • If a post, written or video, is part of a blog, it is one part of a larger, overarching work.  This means that, like the title of an article in a journal or a title of a chapter ion a book, the post's title is no italicized in the reference (as shown under Web examples Blog Post). A stand-alone YouTube video is more like a video or movie that happens to be online so the title should be in italics.
