Sealing Driveway Cracks

I've sealed my asphalt driveway a few times myself using big box materials. I've never attempted to fill cracks tho. And a few searches here seem to show that it may not be as easy? Like the material doesn't last long and the cracks reopen?

Is filling cracks like the attached something a diy'er can realistically do?

Very easy, it's been a few houses since I had asphalt drive but used to fill cracks all the time before sealing the driveway. Bottle of crack filler squeezed into the crack with a squeegee to force it down and smooth it out ( I used a plastic bondo spreader) then seal the entire driveway!

and the cracks reopen
It's a continuous maintenance item!
