LyX on my system (Mint) does not have a converter defined for GIFs,
maybe because the GIF format is so 20th century? :-) At any rate, I'm
pretty sure ImageMagick can convert GIF to JPG or PNG or maybe EPS. I
suggest try to convert one of the files using ImageMagick, and if it
works, just define a GIF converter using ImageMagick in LyX.
