I have no idea if it's a new sense, but they're gif animations.
 Photographs, drawings, and videos are animated into gifs (they're more
like cartoons).  In this case, it may have been done so that the video
didn't need to be streamed.

The use of "animation" indicates to me that the writer is honestly stating
that it's not the video replay.
