No, he means that because the camera is taking photos so goddamn fast, it's recording the ripples closest to us sooner than the ones further away. When the light bounces off the table closer to the camera, it reaches the camera sooner than the light bouncing off the far end of the table, and because the camera is taking pictures so fast that light only travels 6mm between frames it's seeing the closer end of the ripple first, causing a distortion in the ripples shape.

To put it another way, imagine you have a row of swings, all swinging at the same speed, all at the same time, so that in real time you see them all swinging in sync. You take this special camera, and take a photo when the first swing is at the apex of its swing. Because it is photographing so fast, the further away the swing is the longer the time delay between when light bounces off the swing and when light reaches the camera. Even though all the swings are really in sync, you would get a video where the further away a swing is the further behind the closest swing it would appear to be, simply because the light from the further swings is taking longer to reach the camera.

I honestly cannot think of any other way to explain this.

i think he is referring to Einstein's theory that if you can go around the speed of light, time would slow down for you, stop, or possibly move in reverse.

this would be an interesting conversation if I actually understood quantum mechanics. unfortunately, im only a sophomore in college :p

It only saves the last few moments it filmed.

So you have to stop recording right after the event you filmed if you want to keep it. Just like filming with certain slowmotion cameras.
