The solder in the video looks like a clear liquid, I’m I missing something. I’m used to solder that looks like wire? Is there something new that is easier to use?

Thanks for putting this up, I’m trying to decide if I can do the soldering and I just want to make sure I know what I’m getting myself into.

Sorry for the confusion. That clear liquid is actually flux. The solder has been put on the iron tip prior to soldering the pads. Not much solder is needed but the flux is necessary to help the flow and bonding of the solder.
