On devices running on Andriod 8.0 (Oreo) you are able to set videos as the lockscreen wallpaper. The Video file should not be over 100MB and playing time must be less than 15 seconds.
Once this has been set up,  when your device enters lockscreen mode, the video wallpaper will play automatically.
You can use a personal video or you are able to download video wallpapers from the Galaxy Themes Application on your device.
