I found the solution:
in order to use the upload plugin, the user has to either have the Edit media or the Administer media permission.


There is a settings page for controlling media in wysiwyg that allows you to configure this.

It is at admin/config/media/browser

The setting in question is "Enabled browser plugins". Check the "Upload" box.

    OK, i am not telling about wysiwyg configuration, because the latest version of CKeditor do not depended on drupal wysiwyg module, if i use Media module with the latest version of CKEditor then there is no upload option.: i.sstatic.net/Q2O7s.png any idea?

There's also a permission called 'Add and upload new files' under 'File Entity' which might help people. This added the missing Upload tab to the generic (non-CKEditor) media browser for me…

(Note you don't need the plupload module just for this - that's a fancy widget, whereas changing the permission just adds a standard Drupal file upload field.)
