I'm just putting this here for people getting to this course late like I did. Updates have been made to Webpack and other Node Modules since this course was made. You have two choices:

  1. Figure out what changed and fix it
  2. Finish the quiz at the end of this section, then checkout the tags for section 4. You'll pick up right where the end of this video leaves off.
git clone https://github.com/treehouse-projects/mean-todo.git
cd mean-todo
git checkout tags/s4v1 -b using-mongodb-with-express-and-mongoose
npm install

I hope this saves someone some headache.
