Skipped frames converting H264 video format using avconv.

I am trying to convert an H264 video (from CCTV controller) into mov, mp4 or any other more accessible format. However, I am experiencing dropped frames and mplayer while playing back the converted output issues a huge list of errors.

I am using this command for the conversion.
avconv -i /media/usb0/RecordFile/video.264 -vcodec copy
Added Later:
I removed the "-vcodec copy" string from the command which resulted into better conversion.
