You need to configure a PGL Content type for your workload.  In
particular, mime field.  Documentation for Content type is available at
[1].  Mime type is documented at [2].

I cannot give you exact type or size values, you should find it yourself
from docs or real traffic.  Size of video objects may greatly vary
depending on environment and usage patterns.  Collecting stats from real
traffic and simulating it using a user-defind distribution [3] may be a
good option.  Depending on your needs, you may also prefer to use
existing content for replies in the test verbatim.  CDB allows for it
