Do not rely on the "citation" button that appears in most of these databases. It is usually incorrect. The tricky thing about siting online sources (in any style) is that the content in the citatiion may change depending on how much information you have and whether you are citing the title or a particular contributor.
It is best to consult the official manual of the citation style you are using to be certain of the correct citation format.

Scotland. Dir. Paul King. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), 2008. VAST: Academic Video Online. Web. 6 May 2014.
Generally you begin the citation with the title of the video. But, if you are citing the contributions of a particular individual, begin with that person;s name.

All citation styles give Author, Date, Title, and Source. The difference among styles is in the order, manner and detail displayed. Examples of the two most common citation styes - MLA and APA - are given in the adjacent box. However, always consult the manual of the citation style you are using.
