Color banding and noise

I see color banding and noise in Kodi, MPC-HE, PotPlayer, and pretty much any player except mpv. I do not use any sort of post-processing in them (including mpv). Before anyone asks, yes, I have read over video output and color space extensively. The colors are correct but these ugly artifacts are present and there's no way they're actually present in the source. I've tried different displays and the problem is still present. You may say "if it ain't broke don't fix it" in regards to this problem not appearing in mpv, but I want to use a madVR-compatible player for tone mapping HDR to SDR, and mpv is not one of those.

I've included images from mpv and Kodi in the Google Drive link below to show what I'm referring to. I use a VA panel for watching movies and shows, but I have trouble seeing the artifacts on my laptop's IPS panel as the images are dark and IPS panels suffer from backlight bleed. Therefore, you may have a bit of trouble seeing the banding and noise depending on what monitor you're using to view the images.

My apologies. Nobody had replied for awhile prior to your response, so I just took the link down, assumed the thread would become buried in the depths of Doom9, and stopped checking for replies. I've created a new, working link and shall vigilantly await your response...
