Well, basically a module is a standalone part. VLC is composed of one main 
module (the core if you want) and a multitude of other pluggable modules 
which can be compiled as plugins or built in the vlc executable.
To summarize, plugins and builtins are modules, they are just named 
differently depending on how you decide to compile them.

Hope this helps,
