Works Cited pages are traditionally a separate page from the rest of your document.  Unless your teacher has specifically instructed you to include it directly following the essay content I suggest including it as a separate page.

Your first entry does not need to include quotation marks.  The italics indicate it is the title of the work. You do not need to include indications it does not have a date either; it is naturally assumed in absent.  However, you do need to include the publisher, which is more likely the web site you retrieved it from and the date you accessed the site. 

Title. Website Publisher. Web. Date Accessed.

Alexander the Great Alexander of Macedon Biography. History of Macedonia Blog. Web. 30 September 2015

MLA does not have a specific format for YouTube videos, so the standard is to use the online film format.  There are several on YouTube, so I went with the first.  You may need to modify as necessary.  Be mindful there are several examples of YouTube being used as the host and website publisher.  However, YouTube is a Google company, therefore Google is the publisher.

Gil, Hernan. "Alexander the Great - Documentary." Online video clip. YouTube.com. Google, 25 October 2014. Web. 30 September 2015.

Author’s Name or Poster’s Username. “Title of Video.” Online video clip. Name of Website. Name of Website’s Publisher, date of posting. Web. Date retrieved.
