In this paper questions are discussed regarding fuzzy search of images and their fragments in streams of videodata in conditions of distorted query. Presented method is based on «bag of points» approach to construction of robust and compact image descriptors, hierarchical clusterization method for primary search and RANSAC method for secondary qualifying search. In intermediary experiments performed with streams of television broadcasting data, when applied for search of video frame fragments, projectively distorted frames and frames with scene shifted in time, the method shows promising results from search «precision» point of view as well as from the point of view of computational efficiency. The research is performed with financial support of RFBR (projects проекты 15-29-06086 ofi_m, 15-29-06083 ofi_m, 16-07-00616 A).
