I currently plan the integration of mixpanel in our mobile app, where people can watch videos of places they like. In this app we have a short onboarding asking for traveler type and notification permission. I want to know the time it takes users from opening the app for the first time to watching a video. Do I need to explicitly define a timing event for that or can I extract that information easily from the timestamp of an app-open event and a video-playback event? Are there advantages or disadvantages to the two approaches? Thank you very much for your input!
