The Fireball Recovery and Interplanetary Observation Network (FRIPON) is a French project started in 2014 which will monitor the sky, using 100 all-sky cameras to detect meteors and to retrieve related meteorites on the ground. There are several detection software all around. Some of them are proprietary. Also, some of them are hardware dependent. We present here the open source software for meteor detection to be installed on the FRIPON network's stations. The software will run on Linux with gigabit Ethernet cameras and we plan to make it cross platform. This paper is focused on the meteor detection method used for the pipeline development and the present capabilities.
