Who are these people?

The video seems like a load of crap to me -- their points may have some validity, but they take random bits of training and racing footage to prove differences, as opposed to controlled clinical footage.

The footage of Ryan Hall for bounce and stride angle is on a training run; the comparison video for stride angle looks like it was shot in the final sprint of a race. Bounce on Hall was shot close up; the comparison footage was shot from a distance. Hard to be accurate in measurement or comparison.

And who is Meb Kef-li-ziggy?

I lasted about another minute, until I had fully absorbed how carefully they were choosing their very short segments of video to prove their point.
