Some good older videos, still mostly relevant, some about really basic concepts and some more in-depth:
(Some of these show installing userscripts from the userscripts.org site that died in early 2014. Ignore that and get the current versions here.)

Searching for HITS - YouTube - by littlemissmono, Jun 2014 (includes demonstrations of several userscripts for the normal mturk.com search interface) (She also posted some other videos that are about HIT Scraper, but that userscript has changed so much since then in regard to much of what the videos focus on that they aren't very helpful anymore, and have static issues anyway, so just go watch Tjololo's/Tigerpants's/Jackie's videos for HIT Scraper coverage.)

How to install scripts for MTurk + best scripts for beginners - YouTube - by Sparecashguide, Dec 2014 (he messed up his demonstration of 'how to install' by not having restarted Chrome after installing Tampermonkey, until after he'd prematurely recorded the attempt to click on scripts' install buttons without TM running)
