The best (and maybe only) examples are the modules source themselves.
Just copy one simple module, and modify it to your needs.

Linking to libvlc should do the trick, however you may need some
headers that are only internal to vlc source.

You can copy these headers with your module, but be sure that they are
the exact same used to compile the libvlc, to keep ABI compatibility.

(The best way still remains putting your module in the VLC source tree)
