It works
By , for WP 4.2.2

How I do it:
1. Install & activate 'WP Attachment Export' plugin in old WP site.
2. In old WP site, run export, and download the .xml.
3. Copy entire 'uploads' folder from old WP installation to the new one.
4. From new WP Dashboard, run Tools-> Import -> WordPress, and upload the .xml file.

Note: I ran them in localhost.

Works well - 4.2.3

Oldie, but works!

I was trying to move a "Media Library" for around 2,000 attachments, it led to a big wxr file, around 25 MiB, and as I could import it, the media library always timed out. This made a smaller file (~ 3MiB, which gzipped were around 300 KiB) and thanks to that, I could do it with two tries.

I hope the author keep updating this :)

Note: I exported from a multisite using 3.5.2 and imported using the standard imported into a brande new 3.9.1
