Is the structure like
Or are trailers in their own folder?
If they are in their own folder you can make a tvshow.nfo file for them and create a tv show called trailers, then modify each of the trailer nfos to have episode numbers for that trailer tv show and scan that folder.
If they are not in their own folder i think you still have to make a tvshow.nfo and modify their nfos but then manually access the directory in xbmc and hit "i" on each trailer and tell xbmc what "show" it should belong to. i dont think they could be scanned in automatically if they are in a movie folder.
I dont believe you have any way to filter out just trailers from your movie folder if everything is just dumped in without the trailers being in the library somehow. There is a tool called MyLibrary, its not an addon, that can scan in anything to your library. It has a "generic" content option that might work for your situation, i know someone uses it for TED Talks and i think it works by creating a tv show to assign all your generic items to. Essentially it would accomplish what i said before but more automated. It will probably take you a while to set it up so if you only have a few trailers you would be better off manually adding them in.
mine is located in each movie directory
--- trailer directory
----------- Trailer 1
---------------- Trailer 1.mp4
---------------- Trailer 1.nfo
----------- Trailer 2
---------------- Trailer 2.mp4
---------------- Trailer 2.nfo
now i created a directory channel for the mail trailer dir and ptv shows them ok
but doesnt have any info from the nfo
here is the trailer channel file for example:
F:\11\Trailers\Rushlights (Trailer)\Rushlights (Trailer).mov
#EXTINF:113,VHS2 (Trailer Mirror)////
F:\11\Trailers\VHS2 (Trailer Mirror)\VHS2 (Trailer Mirror).mov
#EXTINF:101,The Lone Ranger (Trailer 4 Mirror)////
F:\11\Trailers\The Lone Ranger (Trailer 4 Mirror)\The Lone Ranger (Trailer 4 Mirror).mov
#EXTINF:149,About Time (Trailer)////
F:\11\Trailers\About Time (Trailer)\About Time (Trailer).mov
#EXTINF:125,Rushlights (Trailer Mirror)////
F:\11\Trailers\Rushlights (Trailer Mirror)\Rushlights (Trailer Mirror).mov
