    I'd say there's no general rule, but try to put yourself in the mind of the reader. Why would they want the source. Do they want to know whose original work you used? If so, you should credit the original source. Do they want to look it up to learn more? If so, Youtube is in theory okay but a standard textbook would be much better (since the Youtube video will probably have been based on a textbook). Is the Youtube video itself the original source? E.g. does it show a chemical process that provoked a research question? If so, then it should definitely be in there.

    Yup- absolutely fine! Just make sure you write out the WHOLE web link; I didn't do this last year and it was a pain because I had to write it out again! Best of luck with your ISA!x
