    Smartlook Qualitative Analytics

    Free user recording, heatmaps and analytics for sites & apps

    You won't be able to see video of the user but you will be able to see recording of how they interact with the website. I usually recommend all my client to have smartlook enable at least one month following the launch.

    BIG fan of UserTesting. We've used it several times to get feedback on pre-released UI from (important) people that don't know Product Hunt already. Pro tip: Be sure to have another person (ideally someone not on your team) read through the instructions and questions asked of testers. It's easy to confuse testers or ask leading questions when you're so close to your own product.
    Get videos of real people speaking their thoughts as they use websites, mobile apps, prototypes, and more.

    See every click, swipe and scroll on your site.

    Slightly different than what you're looking for. But I think you'd find this useful as well. FullStory records everything that your users do and then you can replay it later. So you don't get the voice over/paid tester. But you do get to see how real users experience what you've built. Which I think gives you even more valuable information than a paid tester.
