Look at the appletrailer script which was mentioned on the users-list, 
even though it doesn't follow the agreement on the trailer site, it does 
add the trailers to the MythVideo without you having to scan manually.
As far as I remember it added the video's directly via mysql.

Should help you save time, you can spend on the max episode limit ;)
