custom url hander in windows 7 for putty

I was trying to get web browser to launch putty in ssh mode when clicked on a link ssh2:// . I tried numerous hack as mentioned in stackoverflow and msdn. But I couldn't get it to work on my url ssh2:// . Then I found his customurl application in codeplex.  This application is very simple and works as shown in the site. For me when i clicked on the custom url, i had to accept many warnings dialogue from windows to allow custom url to handle the url and i clicked on the check box of not to show this warning in future clicks. After that it is working fine. Be careful when you are using variables. I wrote %HOST% instead  of %Host% and the application throw error of unable to find %HOST%.

dvd playback error which are actually not errors

i got this error when i tried to playback a dvd in arch linux with mplayer

Playing dvd://.
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.BU.
Can't open VMG info!

I was thinking of different things like could it be because of codecs or region dvd settings and many other options . Actually the thing was very simple, i inserted a Audio CD instead of dvd.
