Recommended Media Setting not available in menu

I have downloaded the icc profile for the Fine Art paper I am using and installed it, however, the appropriate media is not showing as available for selection in the menu in Photoshop. (I need to access Velvet Fine Art Paper). In fact, no Fine Art options are available, only Epson ones. Can you advise me? Thanks!

Where did you load this ICC profile?
On a photo paper producer?
Perhaps you only import the profile for Espson printer?
Be aware that all these ICC profile are essentially made by photo paper producers and for specific printers.
What paper brand do you use?

You can also find ICC makers on the market like:

Hi Michel, thanks for your help. The paper is Canson PrintMaking Rag and the icc profile is from Canson, specifically for my model of printer (R3000). I don't understand why Canson would be providing profiles for Epson paper, and not for their own.

Every paper producer realise ICC profile adapted for different printers.
I wil not enter to all colorimetric considerations, but some details are needed to understand a bit why it is so: 

On one side you have a graphic file made by a camera. The colorimetry of this graphic file is based on the RGB or sRGB graphic world. The camera producers are using rules made by their own to comme from the image capture made by the camera (that is not a graphic file) in view to make it visible on a screen.
 
On the other side you have printers that are using an other colour interpretation system that is base on the CMJK world. One more time this world is interpreted by the producers in view to make a printer that they think is printing the best colours.

So you see RGB and CMYK are to different languages that are both interpreted by engineers.

It' like a branch speaking person trying to speak with a Chinese one... You need the best interpreter to get the best translation of your speech otherwise you will not understand correctly.
In the digital world one have the same situation. This is why every paper producers owe to generate their interpreters called ICC profile ands this for every papers they produce and every printer this paper is supposed to be used.

And this only a very short explanation. One can easily go to much more complications
 
Please tell me if this is what you do:
To download Canson Icc Profile, you go there: profil-icc 
Then you click on the "imprimante button (see the dump)

After the click you have a choice: look at the dump:


You choose EPSON printer. Then you get a list regarding for which printer are the ICC profile done. Look at the dump



Choose your printer and make choice about paper type.

Yes, that's what I did. And then I followed this video from the same page to install the profile.

Ok than ... Your last video has only about the printer setting, there is no Icc profile there. To use the correct Icc Profile yo must choose it through LR in the print section.
