Sounds like oil is being flung by one of the belts. Do you have A/C? when the front shaft seal goes out on a compressor, it (Ester or Pag oil)will be flung like that.
Yeah, is the oil right above the belt in the front, going from side to side? Could also be if you are leaking PS fluid onto the belt, or the oil filter is leaking onto the belt a little.
If it's going from front to back on the passenger side, it could be the inner CV joint throwing grease, if the boot is ripped. But this looks lumpier than oil. And you'd smell it burning off the cat too.

center pully=main seal (oil pump is below so oil shouldn't leak up)
AC pully=AC might be leaking
Power steering=power steering leak?
Did you go through any really big puddles? That would throw all sorts of stuff up.

It was the front main seal. Cheap to buy, and easy to replace.
