Using swfobject with FLV Player

I'd like to add the player to a page directly in a div using only swfobject without these object tags generated by dreamweaver but I get a 'Play List XML not loaded!' error.
I've converted all the Params and Flashvars that were generated by dreamweaver into js objects and I call swfobject.embedSWF with these config objects.
The playlist definition is like that :
_videoType: 'File (URL)' and
PlayListXML_path: 'http://www.domain.tld/flash/player/playlists/homepage.xml'
The player swf is located in http://www.domain.tld/flash/player/.

The playlist xml displays correctly in a web browser.
Did I miss something? Is it possible to get it work this way?

Thx in advance for your help.
King regards,

The PlayListXML_path var needs to be quoted and escaped ...
That's a bit weird because it doesn't do that with the other variables.

This is an example code working with swfobject:

alert('swfobject missing!');

var flashvars = {
PlayListXML_path: '\'http://www.domain.tld/flash/player/playlists/homepage.xml\'',
_showMainBar: true,
_skin: 'Default',
_mainbarAutoHide: true,
_mainbar_Alpha: 100,
_mainbar_Top: '#333333',
_mainbar_Bottom: '#000000',
_loadSkin: false,
_thumbnailCarousel: true,
_fixedWidth: 400,
_fixedHeight: 226,
_videoProportions: true,
_autoSize: true,
_autoPlay: false,
_loop: false,
_bufferTime: 2,
_buttonToolTips: false,

_showFullscreenButton: true,
_showPlayListButton: true,

_addexterpl: false,
_plbgcolor: '#000000',
_plwidth: 480,
_plheight: 272,
_ownerLogoIMGPath: 'logo.png',
_ownerLogoAlpha: 0,
_ownerLogoLink: '#',
_rightClickMenuCopyright: 'VL',
_rightClickMenuCopyrightLink: '#',

_objectID: 'video'

var params = {
allowFullScreen: 'true',
wmode: 'transparent',
quality: 'high',
allowScriptAccess: 'always',
swliveconnect: true,
allowFullScreen: true,
swfversion: ''

swfobject.embedSWF('http://www.domain.tld/flash/player/player.swf', 'video', '400', '225', '9.0.115', '/scripts/lib/swfobject/expressInstall.swf', flashvars, params);
