you have to run two terminals
one for mongod first as server
second mongo as shell
I hope this help someone.

I had some issues with this myself. Try rewatching from 2 mins, and considering the advice from Anthony c and Jason Chan as both were helpful comments as I troubleshot locally. It's working for me now. Also, I had to run
in one terminal first, then
in the next and it worked.
