How did you change the url?

You coud try making these changes to registry:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Media Type\Extensions\.nuv]
"Source Filter"="{E436EBB5-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}"
"Media Type"="{E436EB83-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}"

This is not the best solution and may cause problems for non mpeg2 nuv
I haven't acutaly tried this myself so it may or maynot work.

The reason (i think) why you can't get it to work is that directshow doesn't
find any source filter that it can use to play nuv files with mpeg2 or the
mediatype is not detected properly.

If you install the windows filters i created this registry key will be
removed (actualy it's removed when registering dsmyth.dll)
