Business Connectivity Services - Authentication from the browser

Understanding how BCS works with different types of authentication is not that easy, unless you have an excellent resource which explains in a simple but effective way. I was looking for such resource and I stumbled upon this video. When I watched this 36 minutes video, I was impressed with the way the Presenter has put it across. This video takes SQL Server data source as an example and explains how different kinds of authentication works in BCS such as User's Identity, BDC Identity, Impersonate Windows Identity, and Impersonate Custom Identity. Do watch this video to understand the concepts of authentication from the browser in BCS.   Video Source
