I am using SlideshowPro on my homepage for a flash slideshow banner. Following the instructions I found in here, I was able to get it functioning perfectly except this:
In the component inspector, I set the default path as http://mysite.com/home/xml
So if I browse to http://mysite.com the slideshow loads perfectly.
But if I browse to http://www.mysite.com the slideshow never loads because the default path is listed without the WWW.
So, how can I set the default path to include and not include the WWW?
I tried to go into my hosting account and just create a redirect so that if anyone went to http://www.mysite.com it would redirect to http://mysite.com, but it won't take. My host (A2Hosting) says that it seems SS is rewriting my URLs. I don't think that makes any sense, but am not sure what else to do. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help everyone.

Solo, that was awesome! Thank you. It makes the very first page on the re-direct non-friendly, but after that all's good. This was a very simple solution. Kudos to you.

The slideshow actually never loads because of Flashs security Model. If you want to fix this (and don't want to rely on the rewrite or rather prefer the www in your url) then do the following:
Create a file named crossdomain.xml with the follwing contents:
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-access-from domain="www.mysite.com" />
<allow-access-from domain="mysite.com" />
Upload it to your web-root. Done.
If you have other domain-names pointing to the same content (aliases), add them to the list of allowed domains as well.

Thanks Banal. I'll give that a shot tomorrow!
