4k 10-bit HEVC video looks washed out / undersaturated
I am using latest stable kodi on Fedora Linux and having an issue with all 4k releases. At this point I have about 40 movies that are x265 encoding, mkv container, 10-bit, 4k and they all look washed out / under saturated. The monitor I am using is not HDR so I don't expect 10 bit colours but I would expect it to downscale one way or another and look like more common 8 bit video. I am also assuming that it is 10 bit colour that is causing this but perhaps it's x265 encoding. It also looks the same in VLC player but it also stutters so it's clear that support is not properly implemented there yet. Default windows 10 player looks more like 8 bit video, but I feel there is too much loss of definition. MPV player handled it the best and colours looked like 8 bit on an 8 bit monitor.

Why does 10 bit video look under under saturated in Kodi and other players? Is there a way to fix this issue? I feel like I might be missing something simple but I can't find any references to an issue like this.
