I’ve tried that but it times out, freezes, etc. Wonder if there is a max number of items per import.

I recommend that first you try importing a small sample of your videos (e.g. 100), making sure to sample the different cameras and file formats, and trying out everything you'd like to do with the videos in LR.  LR's support for video is minimal and many people experience significant issues trying to use it.
