You and I are on the exact same video. It seems like you've mixed modules and things up. "Install user beautifulsoup4.."?
"no module named pip"?. What exactly did you do?

My issue was Pycharm would not install the BeautifulSoup package for Python 3. This was my solution,

- I uploaded beautifulsoup4 to my desktop
- Went to terminal (I am on a Mac) and went to beautifulsoup directory (to do this type 'cd' and path to directory which can be found on 'get info' in any file in destination folder) 
- typed '2to3 -w bs4' on terminal - this converts soup from python2 to python3
-typed 'python3 easy_install beautifulsoup4' in terminal - this assumes you have package 'distribute' loaded up, otherwise use pip - I do not know script for this
-in pycharm IDE 'from bs4 import BeautifulSoup'

I'm new at programming and I'm sure there is an easier solution but this worked for me. I don't know why in my case it did not work straight out of the package in Pycharm (I have all newest version) however if anyone knows I'd be pleased to hear.
