You shouldn't stick to a single youtube video.

It is. 
Even the name HLS stands for "HTTP Live Streaming".

As with http objects to cache or not to cache is something the server can specify (like no-cache headers (add_header 'Cache-Control' 'no-cache'; [1]) etc) and it's on player/client side to honour those.

No matter the stream setup (live stream / with or without history or delay) the video chunks are just static files (written by the transcoder).
