Do you mean, by videos your own downloaded from a webcam?

If so, make sure you get at least 1GB RAM.Unless you play games, you won't need a particularly beefy graphics card and would be better off spending on the sound card and speakers (choice is a subjective thing as no 2 peoples hearing is the same).Any modern processor with speed above 2Gig will adequately handle video.

Make sure the computer has the inputs and outputs you want if you are going to connect to say a TV.Also most modern digicams connect via the faster firewire connector so make sure it's included if you need it.

Personally I would go for one large internal hard drive plus an external for back up.
