They don't have support for html5 on monetized videos last I remember.

They do, that was added a few months ago.

Apparently the way Omni embeds YouTube videos prevents it from using HTML 5 video mode.

I was also suggesting that as a GIF alternative since it's way more compressed and thus easier on bandwidth.
In some cases GIFs can be smaller, though. It depends what you made the GIF with and its content. If almost nothing moves every frame then it's gonna be small, but if it's like Supersonic Ball where literally every pixel change every frame, then it's 900 KB in 1 second.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Same story with most video codecs, with the exception that video encoders often put in keyframes every few seconds against file corruption and the like.
