I don't think it's difficult to do right at all to be honest. You can
just make user-defined thresholds so the the user can decide himself
how many mins or % of the total recording triggers the partial-view
and viewed flags. For example one guy might want:

not-viewed: <5% viewed
partial-viewed: 5%+ viewed
viewed: 95%+ viewed

and another guy could customize it differently such as <10%, 10%+,
99%+...  This way the user gets the 3 flags and gets to decide when
they're triggered. I think this would satisfy the majority/most users
with low difficulty to implement.
