I tried to build current MPlayer, but the build failed with the following


libavcodec/vaapi_encode_vp8.c:20:27: fatal error: va/va_enc_vp8.h: No such file or directory
 #include <va/va_enc_vp8.h>
compilation terminated.
make[1]: *** [libavcodec/vaapi_encode_vp8.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/auerswald/Software/mplayer/ffmpeg'
make: *** [ffmpeg/libavcodec/libavcodec.a] Error 2


Perhaps a configure check for the needed header file could be added?

I used the following command line to start the build:

    svn up && make distclean && ./configure && make

Inside every large problem is a small problem struggling to get out.
