JW Platform. Redirect to certain .MP4 file

A video uploaded to JW Platform becomes transcoded to several .MP4 files besides HLS format. Each of them gets postfix added to the end of the file name like <name>-28903483.mp4. If I use original file name <name>.mp4 in my JW Player as .mp4 source, one of the files with the postfix starts playing after initial redirect (302). What is the logic behind that? Which bitrate is chosen by default? Can it be changed?

As I understood bitrate selection won't be changed in this configuration during playback. Am I right?

Look at the SOURCES tab of your uploaded content to see the direct URL to a specific conversion quality that gets created. The URL has a media ID and a specific conversion key. You could point to the JSON feed of the content you want to play back to make different qualities available but unless you have a Premium Subscription or above the user will have to manually select a higher quality:

var playerInstance = jwplayer("myElement");
    playlist: " here.json",
