The error you are getting is strange - we also tried to reproduce it locally by creating a media field, but could not reproduce it on a blank, 5.4 project. If possible, can you provide us with more details on how you have set the project? Are there any extensionless ( .file ) files in the root of the folder of the project?
All the best,
the Telerik team
