I have tried many different ways to backup a SharePoint site. I have found STSADM to be pretty reliable when backing up an entire site.
In an effort to provide additional training resources for our staff we have begun creating short videos demonstrating how to use a particular software application. Our company uses SharePoint as our Intranet. We wanted the ablility to embed these videos directly into a webpart on a page within SharePoint. This page also contains webparts for links to corisponding documents and a survey.
