I just used this and it worked perfectly. It took me 2 attempts to get it right however because you have to do some things differently to the way he does it in than tutorial which I didnt realise at first.

I cant watch the videos obviously but I think you are trying to UVW map. You have to add a UVW modifier then select planar then select x or y and fit.
