[Cin] Seconds to preroll render

for me only obvious positive difference comes from increasing cache from
256 mb to 2048 mvb

but I am on 32-bit cin + 64 bit Linux kernel (5.1.12)

I tried with single 1080p 24 fps vp9 video as downloaded from youtube. With
default 256 mb cache reverse playback stutters a lot. With 512 it stutters
less. With 2048 mb it stutters only ocassionally.

Changing preroll renders from 0 to 100.0 does not change things for me.
