have this problem as well.

When having WPML media plugin activated: hundreds of empty media in my medialibrary.
When I deactivate the media plugin: the images get uploaded, I can see them in my FTP client, but they dont show up in the media library.

Can I downgrade to older version? This is costing time/money 🙁

I'm having this issues aswell. Have a grey thumbnail image that displays repeatedly but cannot be deleted.

Is this fixed in the latest version? Using WP 4.1.1 with WPML seems to be the same issue...
Just grey thumbnails but no preview or image to use...

Hi, I have the same issue. I deactivated all the plugins, and when I activated the WPML, boom! not working. The image is uploaded but without a preview and always gives me an error message. I have the latest updates for both wordpress and wpml. Please heeeeeelp!!!

Also, I have WPML installed on other sites and works fine.
