MK8 Cruelty

Mario Kart 8 has proven to be a major success for the Wii U in 2014, being critically acclaimed and — more importantly — performing well at retail. A feature it introduced as new to the franchise, of course, was Mario Kart TV, in which you can save, edit and view stylish replays of races. Another option is to upload these clips to YouTube, though it seems some have been encountering issues with that aspect of the feature.

In recent days some users have been complaining that when trying to upload clips they get error code 104-1852, preventing them from publishing their masterpieces on the popular video service. Over on Nintendo's tech forums a representative has replied to the recent messages to advise that an update is on the way to fix the problem.

Currently, when attempting to upload a game highlight video to YouTube, some users may receive Error Code 104-1852 and the video upload may fail as a result. Nintendo is aware of this and a system update to address this issue is being prepared. We will provide a status update on our support website here once the system update is ready for release.

I will also post an update here, so if you are following this discussion, you’ll receive a notification.

Are you still uploading a number of replays to YouTube, and have you encountered this problem recently? Let us know.

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the tip.
