solid hot hide glue or liquid Titebond hide glue?

I use Titebond liquid hide glue all the time. I just watched a video about using hot pot hide glue without a clamp ( ). I wonder if hot hide glue acts differently than the commercial liquid hide glue in relation to the molecular bonding that is described in the video? Are there advantages to using the hot pot stuff over the prepared liquid in a bottle stuff?

Bonding similar after curing because similar animal proteins.

Hot hide glue setting fast because cooling fast. Short working time making easy rub joints and not much slipping. Hot hide glue stinking bad. Hot hide glue more challenge but maybe also fun learning old traditions. Also needing hot pot or other heating. After making, must using now, not good tomorrow.

Liquid hide glue setting slow, more similar for wood glue. Long working time making harder rub joints, more slipping. Woodworker trying hide glue first time, easier using liquid hide glue.

When I started woodwork in the late 40s at school, I remember the distinctive smell when our teacher was heating up glue.
