Multi-Version Movies Naming Format

This maybe a bug or just the underlying behavior to get multi-versions to work in Emby. According the Emby Wiki you can name the movies files with the following naming convention

 

Multiple versions of the same content can be stored in a single movie folder.

/Movies
  /300 (2006)
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p.mkv
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p-trailer.mp4
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 4K.mkv
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 720p.mp4
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - extended edition.mp4
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - directors cut.mp4
  /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 3D.hsbs.mp4

Each version must begin with the folder name, followed by " - ".

If using the dash method anything following the dash will be what you see in the Emby client app. I have couple movies, Thor: Ragnarok, Pokemon Detective Picaku, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and that do not group properly

Filename must contain Folder name.  See the missing period you have in your Thor Folder name.  

 

Not sure on King Author.
