Scrolling in the VLC menu will either increase/decrease the volume. But if you want to change the action assigned to the Mousewheel, follow this procedure:
  • Open VLC, click on the Tools menu > Preferences
  • Down in the right pane in the "Show Settings" section switch from "Simple" to "All".
  • Go to the "Interface"Tab > Hotkeys Settings > Hotkeys
  • For "MouseWheel x-axis control" use the drop menu to select the desired action
  • Click on Save
