To create an animated GIF you need a list of Graphics expressions, but the 
default output of SpinShow is not a list of Graphics. I'm not sure what the 
purpose of this is, except perhaps to save memory. (All output is stored in 
memory so that it can be referenced with %n.) To make the output a list of 
graphics, do

SetOptions[ShowAnimation, RasterFunction :> $AnimationDisplayFunction]

This works because SpinShow calls ShowAnimation.
