Style Error/missing: The Open University (Harvard)

The OU Library Harvard Guide for a "YouTube item": (OU logon needed) says:

Full reference

Title of Item (date uploaded) YouTube video, added by Name of uploader [Online]. Available at URL (Accessed date).

but, is currently producing when either item type, 'video recording' or, 'Film', is selected:

Title of Item (date uploaded) Director [Film].

When item type 'TV recording' is selected Zotero produces this:

Director (date uploaded) Title of Item, [Online]. Available at URL (Accessed date).

So perhaps a new item type 'Youtube Item' needs to be created?
  • Related problem: 2) Zotero is not respecting the following specification (quoted from p10 Styleguide UL Harvard Styleguide 4th edition (2017):

    Note that unlike the previous three editions of Cite It Right, there is no need to include “[online]” for references that include a web address.

    3) Instead, in the square brackets, where Zotero currently exports a generic category of [online], the Styleguide demands information about the format eg: [audiobook] or [podcast] or [artwork].

    Format information is not being exported from the Zotero database into the bibliography. With only URLs the bibliography shows many different media types indistinguishably. I have many online sources, all affected by this failure to export the Format field data as required by the Styleguide. Have you any fixes or workarounds or advice on when this might be fixed?
