They allow myth to encode audio or video in the given formats. I'm not sure what's necessary for decoding, partly that depends on your display driver. vdpau has an x264 decoder built in for example. Also if you're using nuvexport it may want to see certain libraries.

To get them to YES install the corresponding library development package. On debian there's a libxvid package for prebuilt software and for compiling a libxvid-dev. I imagine it's something similar in redhat land.
