I have 250G drive hooked up to my Time Capsule with some Flip Videos on it that I have offloaded from my MB.  I want to have these backed up to the TC.  Is there a way to do this using time machine.  Right now I just copy over the files.

No, Time Machine cannot back up from a network location.

 

CarbonCopyCloner (donationware) can, and the ChronoSync app (about $40, I think) can.

 

However, putting other things besides Time Machine backups on the TC's internal HD presents some conflicts.  See #Q3 in Using Time Machine with a Time Capsule for details and some workarounds.
