if i have a big video for bt to load, does it store all of it in video memory when playing or does it stream from harddisk. i have several videos that are in different shows that need to play one after another without to much loading time between both. i can preload them in the first show but does this take up all internal memory?

How big is big? Are they MP4 or AVI?
A while ago I tried to load up a video wall with with a bunch of videos playing. Bluff gradually got slower until it ran out of memory and I couldn't complete the project. I have since made multiple shorter MP4 files of 15 seconds each. I should try complete using shorter files. My graphics card is a GeForce GTX 560 which isnt terribly fast. I'm not sure what the limitation is on Bluff.

Videos are streamed. Only the visible frame is stored in memory.

If possible I advise you not to use the video layer, but to export your show with transparency info and do the mixing in your video editor:
