There's a subtype that can be used to better classify videos. Having a music video is actually a good addition, and I'll most likely add this to the media library, even though I'm not sure how to detect that a media is indeed a music video. It will always be possible for the user to enforce it though.

Regarding audio only with visualization, that is how the user choses to play it back, but it doesn't make the media a video, so as such I don't think it should impact the type we store in the media library
