Nice short introduction: Be careful with mistakes: around minute 2.30 they say that "evening star" has the same meaning and different reference as "morning star". Actually, it is the contrary: "evening star" and "Morning star" have the same referent, that is Venus. However, for Frege, they have different senses, that is different ways of presentation of the same object.
Frege calls the "sense" or"Sinn" the mode of presentation, and "Sinn" is often also translated as "meaning". However, when he intends to speak of the object denoted, he, unfortunately, used the German term "Bedeutung" than is normally translated into English as "Meaning". However, this translation is for exegetical necessity, and when presenting the Fregean distinction most authors speak of "sense and reference" or "meaning and reference" (although some may speak of "sense and meaning"; in this case, we should say that the two expressions have the same "meaning" ("Bedutung" or reference) and *different senses*).
