Like any other app or data use on your phone, exactly how much you can do per MB or GB varies with a range of factors from the quality of video being streamed, the strength of your signal, how many people are on a call, etc.  There can also be some “background data use” for apps that auto-update.

That said, as a rough guide, 5GB of data would allow you to do the following:
