Warning: don't follow this guide on production websites!
I got a reply on drupal.org:
It cost me 2 months, dddave is totally right about this tutorial. Oeff...
As stated above I like this content in principle BUT I have one quibble with the wysiwyg tutorial as it currently seems a tad rushed. I heavily doubt that new users relying on that tutorial would have much fun with the media integration. Media is not yet in a state where a simple "enable and turn on" is sufficient. Instead Media/ Media_Youtube require additional set-ups (as you know yourself). So if you don't want go that deep at least provide some words of warning/caution and point users to additional resources.
Media 2.x is under heavy development
Media 2.x is more than promissing, but you cannot downgrade back easily. Don't install on production websites.
You can use it for handling images and documents. It includes a media browser and fieldable file types. If you only need images, Media 1.x is a good alternative.
Hard to configure and your clients also need buttons for Google Maps, Slideshare, ... etc.
As a fallback use the source code button. There you can copy-paste your Youtube embed code (or widgets from other sites). You must understand html offcourse.
Other modules in this guide
Still like them
Better guides will follow :)
