The tutorial uses a 3D layer and you do not appear to have taken that step.   I don't use 3D, but I do know that Photoshop is phasing it out.  Our @davescm might be able to help you.

The first part of the video (drop shadow) is still relevant. You don't double click on the mask, but on the layer, on the area to the right of the layer label text to bring up the layer styles dialogue.

 

The second technique using 3D in Photoshop is no longer relevant as 3D is deprecated and being removed.
