Yes and yes.

The contrib script myth.rebuilddatabase.pl will allow you to import  
videos as if they're recordings provided myth has an appropriate  
codec. mpegs are fine.

To use xine for videos go into the setup for media and change the  
command for default player and possibly the ones for some specific  
file types.
