Well if it can take 16GB and you really need that much RAM then that is what you should get.
But 16GB is like 4-5 times more expensive then 8GB. 8 for $50+/- 16 for $220++.

To see if you need 16GBs run Activity Monitor while you are editing videos and watch the Page ins and Page outs and what Swap used amount is.

If the Page outs are high and you Swap used is high then maybe, and I do mean MayBe, 16GBs would be better.
