codecs like acc for dvd movies or mp3 for music are licensed and illegal to distribute in some countries due to license requirements.

You want the ones with codecs if you wish to play movies or listen to mp3 music.

If you want/need multimedia support you need to download the version who has that support build-in.

If you want Mint 13+Cinnamon (64-bit) with multimedia support, click here: http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=106.
If you want Mint 13+Cinnamon (32-bit) with multimedia support, click here: http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=105

If you want Mint 14+Cinnamon (32-bit) with multimedia support, click here: http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=117
If you want Mint 14+Cinnamon (64-bit) with multimedia support, click here: http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=118
Mint 14 is the latest version of Mint.

under codec version it is written a version without multimedia support

This is easy to explain: Now there's only 1 page where you can find all the various downloads for 1 Mint version instead of having different download locations. It's easier to choose which version you need. With or without multimedia support, 32-bit or 64-bit.
