I would only add more glue if the first try with moisture and an iron didn’t work. If it is hide glue it should work.
Again if it’s not hide glue you have other problems.
Interesting video. Extreme damage, not well repaired IMHO …. but repaired.

bilyo, The reason heat / moisture works (and you need both) is that you are dealing with a reversible hide glue.
Dry heat may indeed shrink the veneer and “modern” glues are not reversible anyway. If you were dealing with new work it is not likely that it wasn’t hide glue.
