DCI P3 getting chosen for UHDTV would be a victory for the studios, since they wouldn't have to upgrade their equipment, but in my opinion it would be a defeat for consumers since the color space...

If you avoid the fake download links, and make sure to uninstall any codec software, you could try the K-Lite Codec Pack (http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm).

HDMI 2.0 can do 12-bit 4:2:2 though for consumer video that should be more than sufficient. Realistically the best that 4K Blu-ray will support would be 12-bit 4:2:0 and that is only if the BDA...
