A streaming film, as opposed to a DVD,  should be cited as a film in a database. In EasyBib Pro, you can select a format type of “Film, Online Video”. The format will default to “Film,” as in a film you saw in a theater or on DVD. You must select “Online Database” and write the name – Swank, Netflix, YouTube, or Films on Demand for instance – in the Database field.

MLA citation for a DVD:

Blackfish. Dir. Gabriela Cowperthwaite. Perf. John Hargrove, Samantha Berg, Mark Simmons, Kim Ashdown, Dean Gomersall. Magnolia Pictures, 2013. DVD. (double-spaced and first line indented)

 

MLA citation for a streaming video in a database, such as Swank, Netflix, YouTube or Films on Demand:

Blackfish. Dir. Gabriela Cowperthwaite. Perf. John Hargrove, Samantha Berg, Mark Simmons, Kim Ashdown, Dean Gomersall. Magnolia Pictures, 2013. Swank Digital Campus. Web. 29 Sept. 2013. (double-spaced and first line indented)
