I want to blit a couple of videos to a different window each. Currently, I''m not using swap chains. For each window, I''m creating a new DirectXDevice (which has it''s own swap chain). I don''t need to share anything between those devices so my question is, is it still better to use swap chains for that?

Yes, use swap chains. Each device is supposed to represent an actual physical device, so if each window is on the same monitor connected to the same video card, you should use swap chains connected to the same device.
