Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the issue. After playing a short audio clip via AVPlayer Play, the next script step is Go to Field selecting a Text field with Global storage. I have included my sample file that was uploaded to FileMaker Server 16.
Let me know what I am doing differently than you so I can replicate the issue.

I'm seeing the same thing with our FileMaker Go solution. Here's my script step:
AVPlayer Play [Object Name : "container_VideoPlayer" ; Disable Interaction: Yes ; Hide Controls: Yes ]
All my videos are MP4 format and they were acceptable on FM 15. Now that we've upgrade server to FMS 16 and Go client to 16, I am seeing the "Attempting to access the media. Please wait…" message every time, which is forcing us to disable the videos. Even if I playback the same video immediately after I successfully play it the first time, it is the same amount of delay, as if it has to load the entire thing all over again.
Here is a functional work around utility script i made. The great thing is if u use this to play all your media, when they fix it, u can change all your media handling is one place.
I find that with FMGO16/Server16 Its actually faster to export the file and play it from the local device. BUT! it will delete the file automatically after playing which is another issue i have documented and has been confirmed on this device. that is y i chose to handle my media in the following way.
Utilities: play sfx (getFieldName)
If [ Get ( SystemPlatform ) = 3 ]
Set Variable [ $sfxField; Value:Get ( ScriptParameter ) ]
Set Variable [ $path; Value:"file:" & Get(DocumentsPath) & GetField ( $sfxField ) ] If [ IsEmpty ( GetFieldName ( $sfxField ) ) ]
Show Custom Dialog [ Message: "No SFX Stored - " & $sfxField; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “No” ] End If
If [ not IsEmpty ( Filter ( GetField ( $sfxField ); " " )) ]
Show Custom Dialog [ Message: "space in file name error - " & $sfxField; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “No” ] Exit Script [ ]
Set Field [ SCAN::ClipboardContainer; GetField ( $sfxField ) ]
Export Field Contents [ SCAN::ClipboardContainer; “$path” ]
AVPlayer Play [ URL: $path; Presentation: Audio Only; Disable Interaction: Yes; Hide Controls: Yes ] Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): .3 ]
