Can you set the speed at which a Manipulate plays when the play button is clicked?

AnimationRate is at least one way to do this, and it can be applied on a per-control basis:

Manipulate[x, {x, 0, 10, AnimationRate -> 1/10, Appearance -> "Open"}]

Manipulate[x, {x, 0, 10, AnimationRate -> 10, Appearance -> "Open"}]

I couldn't see this option in the online documentation for Manipulate - although it can be easy to miss things. If it isn't there I think it would be a good addition. –  cormullion May 16 '12 at 6:20

I presume you are looking for AnimationRate.
Also, if you want smooth motion you should consider RefreshRate.

Manipulate[
 Plot[Sin[x + a], {x, 0, 5 Pi}],
 {a, 0, 2 Pi, ControlType -> Animator, AnimationRate -> 1, RefreshRate -> 60}
]
