As a proof of concept it does work, but user has type categories manually upon file upload and there is no category filtering in media insertion dialog, which kind'a would be the point of having categories.

Hey John, So many thanks for your work on the free plugins ! There is one thing on that one that would be great in furture updates : Having a dropdown with the existing categories when you upload a media file. For now, there is only a blank category field where you need to type in the slug of the category you want to add to the media (ie you need to know the slug). Cheers !

It would be better if you add possibility to show translation of your plugin. May be something like this load_plugin_textdomain('wp-media-categories', false, basename(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/lang/');

Everything about this plugin feels native to WordPress. Filtering your view within the Media Library works exactly how you would expect if you're familiar with filtering posts by category. I also appreciate that the terms are stored in the database in a way that is consistent with all other taxonomies. Great plugin with a singular purpose.
