Possible Duplicate: Advice on getting early Beta testers
I am a representative for Movieggs, a Swedish IT start-up, looking for beta testers. As we are self-funded we do not have the financial strength to contract professional beta testers. If anyone has knowledge about forums or alike where you can post a request for beta testers, please let us know. Movieggs is a software / data base system linking information to online video files.

If you have no budget to hire or aquire beta testers, best is to run a test study by yourself than skipping it.
There are several methods of user tests like
This are just the ways you can go. But more important is what you learn about it. What data or behaviour do you want to observe. Best you read a little here at UX.stackexchange.
Anyway, even a quick test is most the times an eyeopener for pure developers. Seeing that people use your software in an unintended way or doesn't understand your fancy control is "annoying", but gives you on the long run a sort of trust in the usability of your app.
