media_youtube was just set to update on an existing site .. the update failed due to undefined file_type_save() function. In tracking that down, it appears to be form file_entity in media 7.x-2.x, while my site has 7.x-1.2. That probably just needs the version set in the module dependencies.

file_entity is included with Media 1.x, so I'm not sure why this would be an improvement or require 2.x. Note that this is also fixed with #1949520: Remove media_youtube_update_7202() and media_youtube_file_default_types_alter()

I agree with #2; requiring File entity would be redundant.

The issue outlined in the OP is caused by using File entity 2.x with Media 1.x. You should always use the same version of Media and File entity.
