As for general categories, some obvious ones are:

	audio (mad/lame, vorbis, gsm, etc.)
	video (mpeg1, mpeg2, jpeg, etc.)

	muxers/demuxers (avi, qt, mpeg, etc.)

	disk (gnomevfs, dvd)
	network (udp, rtp)
	audio (oss, esd, etc.)
	video (sdl, x, dfb, etc.)

	audio (ladspa, etc.)
	video (median, fade, etc.)

As a general categorization, these seem to work quite well.  The last
category might have arbitrary subcategories, because there's all sorts of
effects and filters one might want to create.

Now, how this relates to directory/module structure, I'm not sure yet.
Gimme a few more minutes, but I wanted to get this out ASAP.
