Why will only sound play but no video?

I had a friend give me episodes of tv shows on a flashdrive and I put them into my computer but when I play them with windows media player only the sound plays but no video. A red ‘x’ shows up near the file name. I tried to download an flv player and other types of players but the problem is either the same or they wont play at all.

Is it the player or the files?

You may need to download some codecs. Do a google search for K-Lite Codec Pack. I would recommend downloading the full or complete version.
