Chicago style does not specifically explain how to cite YouTube videos. However, they do describe how to cite online multimedia (The Chicago Manual of Style, Section 14.280), which may include the following information (don't forget to indent the second and subsequent lines):
1. Firstname, Lastname. “Title of Recording.” Title of the work as a whole (If the clip is part of a larger work), Medium or Name of Website, Time Length of Recording, Posted by, Date Recording was Uploaded, URL.
Lastname, Firstname. “Title of Recording.” Title of the work as a whole (If the clip is part of a larger work), Medium or Name of Website, Time Length of Recording. Posted by, Date Recording was Uploaded. URL.
The following example were taken from the Chicago Manual of Style (14.280 Online Multimedia)
