fatal error: bcm_host.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated

system is LInux opensuse 13.2 . I encoutered this problem while compiling mplayer. It would fail to compile. I disabled many extensions but it would not solve the problem.

There is very little information available about this file online. Mostly its about the discussion of Raspberry. I tried changing the reference to the file in source code, but compilation fails again.

Solution  : Download the mplayer source again and compile it afresh. It will automatically download the latest version of ffmpeg and all would go well.

Comments warmly welcomed.
