I'm guessing it would be the ubuntu-restricted-extras package (if any) .. though if I remember correctly Mint has support for the stuff the "extras" package adds by default.

If you can play flash, mp3's,and commercial DVD's by default you don't need the "extras" ;)



[EDIT]

ubuntu-restricted-extras is just a metapackage that pulls in some other packages as dependencies/recommends .. here's a list of the packages ubuntu-restricted-extras installs:-
 
ubuntu-restricted-addons
ttf-mscorefonts-installer
unrar
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
libavcodec-extra-53


ubunbtu-restricted-addons then pulls in:-

gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly
adobe-flashplugin | flashplugin-installer   (either ONE of those, NOT both)
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
gstreamer1.0-libav
gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3


So if you already have the ones in bold, you're not going to need the ubuntu-restricted-extras package.

Be aware the above info is for Ubuntu 13.04 .. the package versions might be slightly different in Mint 16 which is based on Ubuntu 13.10
