Default, I would say, unless you have some reason to think that changing some cache size would affect loading of a video.

YT does a "lazy load" of comments & related videos, so maybe if you can block that?
Maybe using an "embedded" view of a video (where it is only the video player UI that you see) rather then playing the video "within" the web page (with associated comments & noise)?

Do you know the default value for FF's cache?
