I'm afraid there's no such document. But if you take your time and read 
a few source files, you
find yourself understanding the principles very soon. I had simmilar 
problem when I started to
modify VLC and write own modules, but it didn't take a much time to get 
into it.

Just a suggestion how to start: Take a source file of a module or part 
of vlc which you are
interested in, walk through it and then see all data structures used in 
it in their definition
files (/include/*.h). Plus, open a few modules and see their structures. 
These are simmilar
and you will soon be in it. It's also a good idea to focus only on that 
part you actualy need.
There's no point in understanding such a huge project in one step. Take 
your time and progress...

Of course, this is only my humble opinion and the ideal progress is 
individual indeed.
