ESP32Cam in https mode

Setting up a ESP32Cam in https mode keep getting stuck on it's final step. In http mode all is working as it should. When building the https sketch (below) i am not getting the needed return messages: 'Connection opened' and 'Websocket Connected'

Testing it on a mac, having installed openssl, nodejs, npm correctly, getting everything running without errors. Connecting a CP2102 to the ESP32Cam. What am i missing?

@bananaboat, your topic has been moved to a section of the forum where it hopefully get a better exposure.

Are you receiving any events? I recommend you log any unhandled events.

Shouldn't you set 'isWebSocketConnected' to 'true' in here somewhere?

It says in the 4th block

void onEventsCallback(WebsocketsEvent event, String data){
  if(event == WebsocketsEvent::ConnectionOpened){
    Serial.println("Connection Opened");
    isWebSocketConnected = true;

I have been testing this throughout and it seems to be a ws / wss protocol issue.
Testing the none https version WITHOUT ws worked! WITH the ws protocol on the other hand did not.
The none https version code:

#include "esp_camera.h"
#include <WiFi.h>
#include <ArduinoWebsockets.h>
#define CAMERA_MODEL_AI_THINKER
#include "camera_pins.h"
//part8
const char* ssid = "hello";
const char* password = "1234";
// const char* websocket_server_host = "ws://192.168.2.3"; // does NOT get WebSocket connection
const char* websocket_server_host = "192.168.2.3";      // DOES get websocket connection!
const uint16_t websocket_server_port = 8888;

using namespace websockets;
WebsocketsClient client;
bool isWebSocketConnected;

void onEventsCallback(WebsocketsEvent event, String data){
  if(event == WebsocketsEvent::ConnectionOpened){
    Serial.println("Connection Opened");
    isWebSocketConnected = true;
  }else if(event == WebsocketsEvent::ConnectionClosed){
    Serial.println("Connection Closed");
    isWebSocketConnected = false;
    webSocketConnect();
  }
}

void setup() {
  isWebSocketConnected = false;
  Serial.begin(115200);
  Serial.println();

  camera_config_t config;
  config.ledc_channel = LEDC_CHANNEL_0;
  config.ledc_timer = LEDC_TIMER_0;

Other failed tests with https are:
