Since it does not work with Windoze, it's surely a broken file and it's
surely not mplayer's fault. It might be only a "missing feature"... 

Have you tried the usual options: -bps / -nobps / -ni etc.?

>Has it something do to with this line?

No, this just tells you, that the file has an index and is interleaved,
which is a good this for a file in AVI (=Audio-Video-Interleaved) format.

Only strange thing in output is, that video is sent to a remote display

This might slow things down, but speed does not seem your problem. Nevertheless 
use change DISPLAY variable to   :0.0   and try again....
